Change CVM name in AHV

You may need to modify the names of the CVMs displayed in Prism to match the block/serial/hostname or however you reference the node

Note:
The CVM name should always start with NTNX- and end with -CVM

1. SSH into the CVM and shut it down

cvm_shutdown -h now

2. Enter the following from the AHV host

virsh list --all
virsh domrename NTNX-Old_Name_Here-CVM NTNX-New_Name_Here-CVM

3. Start the CVM

virsh start NEW_NAME

4. Configure autostart in KVM so the CVM boots up with the host

virsh autostart NTNX-New_name_here-CVM
