DB instance Install stops - account user does not exist

Hi all,

We had a problem with our hostname being too long (15 characters), and did not realize it until we were in the middle of the database instance installation and disp+work.exe could not start. We tries all tips about restarting SAPInst, rebooting server etc. to no avail.

We then changed the hostname on Windows 2003, changed the hostnames in the SAP profiles and changed the service via sapstartsrv.exe. When we started SAPInst again, user account "old hostname"\<sapsid>adm did not exist. We need to change the user account to reflect the new hostname. How can this be done? We have tried the user administration in Windows, but did not find a way.

Please let me know if you have any ideas.
