Whats the best possible way to change the url of Windchill. E.g. change the current url http://abc.xyz.com/Windchill to http://abc.xyz.net/Windchill. We have a load balancer configured which can act like reverse proxy.

The current configuration is Windchill cluster and i was wondering if the change can be accomplished by making the load-balancer to act as reverse proxy ?

If you change wt.server.codebase property(reverse proxy URL), enable RMI socket factory, point gateway map codebase  & rpc endpoint to actual rmi hostname. you can use any reverse proxy server to achieve this. The load balancer in your case should be capable of converting/rewriting all the user requests to corresponding active application node pool. The reverse proxy should also be capable of adjusting the location, content-location and URI headers on HTTP redirect response.
