I am trying to add an additional JBOSS server to a cluster. Currently, I just copied over an existing server's directory. Even after changing some basic parameters such as name etc, I noticed that the


file still contains the old servers GUID. Some research

shows that this is generated when a server is first brought online from scratch, but nothing on how to change this. Is there a way to update this so it will be viewed as a unique server in the cluster, or am I better of just taking a fresh Install and configuring from there.

Currently using JBOSS4 on RHEL4 64-bit.
