    Default zimbraSshPublicKey references old hostname after changing hostname

    After changing hostname on my ZCS 7 installation per wiki_ZmSetServerName, the indicated check shows that the zimbraSshPublicKey still references the old hostname when I perform the check listed in the wiki instructions:
    zmprov gs `zmhostname` | grep oldservername
    zimbraBackupReportEmailRecipients: contact@somedomain
    zimbraSshPublicKey: ssh-dss blahblahblah....
    blahblahblah== oldservername
    A) I don't yet see a problem with this, and I tried the following test and wasn't prompted for a password
    ssh -i .ssh/zimbra_identity -o strictHostKeyChecking=no zimbra@oldhostname
    B) Could there be a problem that I haven't yet detected?

    C) Shouldn't I change "things" so that the new hostname is used?

    In addition, a high-level summary of when this ssh key is used in this case could be very much appreciated.

    I wouldn't expect there to be a problem, but you should be able to address it using the zmsshkeygen command on the server with the changed name. Hopefully that will fix the hostname in the key data and prevent future confusion.
