Rename vsx cluster member name on VSX Cluster (r80.30)

A vsx cluster is managed by a Security Multidomain Management MDM (actually managing two domains).

In the vsx cluster composed of two members, is it possibe to rename one cluster member  (R80.30) ?

Thanks

Here below the scenario:

MDM Security Management with 2 Domains (let's call them for simplicity : Domain1 and Domain2).

Each domain is composed of two vsx cluster gateways.

On Domain2 I typed a wrong vsx gateway name name while creating one of the two vsx cluster members

Q1: In a two member vsx cluster is it allowed to remove one member with vsx_util remove_member ?

Q2: Can I use the vsx_util remove_member to delete the (wrongly named) vsx member and recreate it with vsx_util add_member and add the gateway with the correct vsx member name ?

Q3: Is there any other easier solution ? 

Thank you very much for any help.

The correct procedure should be something like:

1. Delete the VSX member object (you can have only one member in the cluster object, but not zero)
2. Reset SIC on the relevant gateway.
3. Create the VSX member object with the correct name.

Followed the below procedure:

disable ha on cluster member (cphastop)

detach licenses

shut all interfaces but Mgmt

vsx_util remove_member

......

 

On a vsx cluster the following error is raised:

"Cannot remove member from cluster. At least two members must remain in cluster."

What you may be able to do is to create a new member with the correct details before removing the member.
