Computer name change breaks local J2EE Engine

I was having a problem with my computer, and in order to fix it, I was given a new machine and my hard drive was taken out of the broken machine and put into the new one. To make this simple, let's say my old computer's name was OLDCOMPUTER and my new one is NEWCOMPUTER.

well, on my new computer now if I try to start my local J2EE Engine using the SAP Management Console it is still referring to OLDCOMPUTER and it won't start.

Long story short, I can NOT change my computer name back to OLDCOMPUTER (it has to do with the way they deploy software to our machines at work). Is there any other way to fix the problem?

    Hi!

    It might be an option to try and run a homogenous system copy on itself. Only problem I see here is the step where the SDMKIT is generated on the source side. If that actually requires the J2EE Engine to be up and running it will not be easy.

    Hi,

    Pls apply the SAP Note 757692 - Changing the hostname for J2EE Engine 6.40/7.0 installation.

    Hope this helps.

    Well, in the mean time, I solved my problem by getting the old computer back and fixing the issue with it, but I'm sure we'll run into this again at some point, so I took a look at that note and it sounds like it would really be better if we could convince our company to let us rename our laptops back to OLDCOMPUTER instead, huh?

    Thanks!

      Hi!

      Another option could be to install the J2EE on a virtual name and assign that name as an alias to YOURCOMPUTER (whichever OLD or NEW). In this case you will not have to change anything but this alias.
