referenced images are missing after the respective server was renamed



we have the problem that all referenced images are missing after the respective server was renamed.

Now we have tons of vwx-files with tons of referenced images that will not be found anymore.

How can i achieve a solution except rename server-volume?

Thanks so far

Depending on what operating system you server is running on, you can probably create some kind of an alias that will accept the old server name and point to the correct location on the new server.


It may be possible to somehow script opening and changing all of your references, but I think that would be challenging.


For the future could you use relative rather than absolute references so it is not tied to the server name?
