Is it possible to change the database instance host ??!!


Quick question, I finished the installation of XI 3.0 with all patches. But the system is running low, very low on resources even though it has 2GB of RAM. I was wondering if it is possible to migrate the <SAPID> database and then re-configure the central instance and J2EE Engine to access a different machine OR do I have to re-install and follow the distributed system installation process.

    Your issue isn't the database, it's the J2EE server. Moving the database instance isn't going to save you enough RAM -- you'll run into the same problem again as soon as you start running messages through the system, when the J2EE engine starts allocating heap space for those messages.

    Our experience has been that 2GB of RAM is not enough for a development/prototype XI system. You need 3GB to do a basic prototype/development machine install (but ask for 4GB if this is your permanent development system). You'll need more than that in a typical production system.
