Hostname change on SAP Sytem running on SAP 4.7,SUSE 9.1 Max db 7.4

hi Gurus

Iam trying to do a hostname change on a system running SAP 4.7 on SUSE Enterprise 9.1 and Maxdb 7.4.

At os level i know i should change in:


the profile parameters

the enviroment for SIDadm e.g files

So is there anywhere else i need to change the hostname on the Database side?

Any ideas welcome

    You need to change also all .XUSER62 files (for <SID>adm and sqd<SID>) - I'm not sure if the "xuser" tool is already in 7.4.

    I suggest you upgrade to MaxDB 7.5 or 7.6.

    • The commands are:

      /path/to/xuser -U DEFAULT -u sap<sid>,<password> -d <SID> -n <hostname> -S SAPR3 -t 0 -I 0 set

      /path/to/xuser -U c -u control,<password> -d <SID> -n <hostname> -S SAPR3 -t 0 -I 0 set

      /path/to/xuser -U w -u superdba,<password> -d <SID> -n <hostname> -S SAPR3 -t 0 -I 0 set

      I strongly recommend you to attend one of the MaxDB training courses provided by SAP University to get basic knowledge about MaxDB administration. The course ADM515 (MaxDB administration basics) fits very well.
