change base hostname/domainname in url of WAS


I've installed a netweaver PI 7.1 machine on a windows 2003 server, just for testing purposes. It's hostname is win2003-srv. Now, we also access this machine from over the internet. The hostname win2003-srv then ofcourse doesn't work and should be

Al the URL's the machine generates when you start the integration builder or anything, are all win2003-srv, instead of Can I change this somewhere? I've looked around a bit already, but couldn't find it. It isn't in the installation guide as well. I'm experienced in XI/PI, but new in system administration.

So: I'm not trying to actually change the hostname of the machine or the SAP system, just trying to change the base part of the URL's it generates for the browser.


Greetings, Walter.

    Hi W,

    The instance parameter icm/host_name_full needs to be specified with a fully-qualified host name (see also SAP Note 654982).

      This a parameter of the profile.

      You can see it in TC RZ11

      You can change it in RZ10. If you change it, you would need to restart your system.
