Configure an alias for a node

About this task

Configure an alias to display for a node throughout OpsCenter and Lifecycle Manager. An alias replaces the IP address or hostname displayed for a node. Give each node a meaningful and memorable name for your environment.


  1. Locate the address.yaml file. The location of the address.yaml file depends on the type of installation:

    • Package installations: /var/lib/datastax-agent/conf/address.yaml

    • Tarball installations: install_location/conf/address.yaml

  2. Open the address.yaml file for editing.

  3. Add the following option to the file:

    alias: nodeName1
  4. Restart the agent.

  5. Repeat the above steps for each node.
