Updating Devices After Changing Enterprise Server Network Address

Applies to:
  • CrashPlan PROe
On enterprise servers running the Code42 environment version 3.5.1 or later, there is a known issue with changing network settings on an enterprise server. When you change an enterprise server's primary or secondary network address, that change is not immediately communicated to client devices. You can trigger the communication of the network address change by pushing any setting from the administration console to client devices.


  • Enterprise servers for CrashPlan PROe version 3.5.1 and later

Recommended solution

Code42 environment version or later

You can trigger the enterprise server to send the new network address by pushing any setting from the administration console to client devices. Changing the setting is not required.

Version or later only
The solution shown here is recommended only for enterprise servers running the Code42 environment version or later. While this process will work for earlier versions, it may replace child organizations' settings regardless of their inheritance settings.
For Code42 environments earlier than version, we recommend upgrading to the latest version.
