The function for renaming hosts in WATO is now available in a new bulk mode. This is a new button in each folder, where you can recursively rename hosts in a generic way. There are several types of renamings that can be done:

LI:case translation into lower or upper case LI:adding and removing suffixes LI:adding prefixes LI:regular expression operations (much like sed) LI:explicit mappings

For each affected site only one restart of the site is needed. This can speed up renaming operations with lots of hosts drastically when compared to renaming each host apart.
