Changing hostname of a SAP system on Linux

Hi Gurus,

In our project there is a requirement to change both hostname and sid of a system. In SWPM I see an option to rename system which actually does the job. But when I run it, I get an error message "\\<newhostname\sapmnt\<newsid>" not accessible. Now my question is, do we need to rename the host first before we run this option? is there any documentation available for the correct procedure to run the option? Pl help...

Regards,

Suman Sengupta

    You can do it all in one step.

    Can you check if the share is accessible from File Explorer?

    \\<newhostname\sapmnt\

    Best regards

    Hi Suman,

    please check the Rename guide, it says: "Before you start the system rename, mount the file system, which you have unmounted in the previous step, under the new <SAPSID>." I guess that's the step that's missing in your case. Guides are here.

    Regards,
