    Hello,

    How can i change the name of a KVM machine in WebGUI?
    I can only edit the VMID.conf with "name: aMachineName"

    Mvg,

    Thijs

    You go to the VM options, and then you double click (or click once and then Edit) on Name

    One shortcoming there is that you cannot use any Domainname in the servername which starts with an number, i for instance got an domain which start with 16 its a .nl, but you cannot fill in : srv.16blabla.nl
    It says its NOT a valid domain, even tho its already registered for like 2 years or so and active on the internet :p
