change portal address remotely

We want to move the users to a different portal adres. How can we do this without asking all users to manualy adjust the portal adres?


i've tried changing the reg key set at installation time, but this didn't work (tried rebooting and refresh connection).

After the reboot it even changed back!

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Palo Alto Networks\GlobalProtect\PanSetup



My assumption would be:

1. change regkey adres

2. delete the appdata folder

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Palo Alto Networks\GlobalProtect

3. reboot ?

Did you try this way?

  1. Stop the PanGPS Service
  2. Change the reg key for the portal
  3. Start the PanGPS Service again

yes. and it changes it back to the old value after you start the service again.
