    Change of IP Address of Tableau Server

    Mary Rani

      Dear All,

       

      How can the IP address of the Tableau Server be changed?

       

      Currently, the IP address of Analyst Server is hosted on machine 1. However, there is a need to migrate from machine 1 to machine 2. And we have already published charts to machine 1.

       

      How can we change the IP address of the Tableau Server to the required machine?

       

      I have gone through Tableau Server document "server_admin7.0" and came across the command "tabadmin set gateway.trusted "IP_address". Is this related to my query?

       

      Please let me know how I can achieve the above by explaining the procedure step-by-step.

       

      Please kindly advise ASAP.

       

      Thanks.

      Mary

          Hi Mary,

           

          I'm not an expert on this, but I would think you would just make a backup of machine 1. Install Tableau Server on Machine 2 and restore the backup to the new server. All workbooks and settings from the prior installation will then be configured on your new IPaddress/machine. Then you just connect your desktop version to the new one and publish to the new one?

           

          Hope that helps.
