XI on i-Series: Hostname


We have an XI 7.0 installation on an i-Series box, OS400/DB400V5R4, and running issues with hostnames. We have instances of R/3 and corresppnding QA instances ont he same box.

Q1: Host names: I understand form the OS guys that thies instance has to have upper case hostname, while SAP seems to be recommending lowercase. Infact, the parameter rsdb/hostname is forced to lowercase. What should be the right hostname. On the SLD, I am seeing that the Java stack is registering itself twice, with an lowercase hsotname, and an uppercase hostname.

Q2: The hostname shown on the SLD Server Details Page is completely wrong. Where can this be changed, and should this be uppercase/lowercase.

    "For more information about unexpected hostnames of registered systems

    in SLD, see SAP Note 1020043. for iseries" which is relateed to your problem

    i found this in following sap note

    978127 SAP NetWeaver 2004s SR2 Installation: IBM eServer iSeries

    but i didn't find SAP Note 1020043

    you should open OSS message for this

    one more thing if you want hostname at OS level in lower case than you can create a alias in lower case in OS400

    asign the hostname as alias in lower case with 'hostname' using CFGTCP command

    also check Note 1052122 - Hostnames in SLD

      Which hostname you given in SAP instence, the same lowercase/uppercase hostname you can give/modify with OS level that is not a problem with TCP communication also.

      In the OS level you can chenge any model like Upper/lower/mix/number etc..That is not a problem.
