BODS Designer connection issue to ugraded local Repository

We are facing an issue with connecting our upgraded local repository with new BODS designer (4.1 to 4.8)

  • - Installed version 4.8 on a fresh server
  • - Copied local repo database from old db (MSSQL Server 2008 to MSSQL Server 2014)
  • - Upgraded added local repo with Repository Manager
  • - Added upgraded local repo in the new CMC and Job Server

Now when we try to connect to the upgraded repo with the new Designer - it seems it is still trying to connect to the old server with an error message - ODBC Call to <Old Server> failed.

Where can I change the parameter to point to the new database instance ?

    We were able to resolve this issue by

    - Backing up AL_MACHINE_INFO table and clearing all the entries

    - Deleting the Local Repo from CMC

    - Registering the Local Repo once again

    - Re-syncing the Job Server to the Repo
