Running that command is going to move everything in the database from 
one host to another.  That includes all settings, directories, files, 
hardware, etc... If you are not actually changing the name on a single 
machine, you're going to have problems.

You've got two options.

1. Use the setting to 'stream all recordings from the master backend'

2. Go into the database and "UPDATE recorded SET hostname='mythback2' 
WHERE hostname='mythback1';"
