Change hostname

Dear Forum,

I just changed the server hostname. As well, changing the profiles and profiles' name to adapt with the new server name. But, when I started, SAP system didn't start. The sapstart.trc and sapstart.log show there is still pointing to the old profile name.

Are there any configurations to change?

Regards,

Agoes

    There are a LOT of things to change:

    - profile

    - c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

    - registry keys (for SAP + Oracle)

    - users (OPS$)

    - Oracle database

    This list is not complete, there may be more...

    I would also suggest to reinstall the system and use a recent backup to restore the host and database.

      having a look at the SAP versions supported by this note (up to 4.0) I concludet:

      forget it.

      the only supported way is homogenious systemcopy as far as CI/J2EE CI or database instance is concerned.

      For all other instances: new installation.

      regards

    the fastest and most reliable way to uninstall CI(DI) and install it again - gives 100% guarantee to work correctly

    Decided NOT to change the hostname, since it is a very tedious job.
