The file should look like this below when opened. Inside this file you will find a section called server_name It should have your old Historian name. In this section the server name has been changed from MV2014 to 172.20.6.138. Once you have changed the server name do File-Save to save your changes.

Now will go back and open up the trend. You will see now that the server name has changed.

 

Note: If a reference to your old server still shows this will need to be deleted out of your servers list.
