How to Request a Bulk Host Database Change

In rare cases, a customer needs to make the same change to many existing Host Database entries. Examples include replacing one Technical Contact with a different Technical Contact, or changing all entries which specify one building to specify instead a different building.

While such changes could be made to each entry individually using the standard Host Database Change Entry form via the Web, when the number of entries to be changed in this way is large (for example, 20 or more), it can become burdensome. In such cases, the customer may request that hostmaster make the changes in bulk on behalf of the customer.

To request such a bulk change, send email to hostmaster@princeton.edu :
