Steps/actions to change domain name on SAP CAL instance

We have a need (seems to be getting more frequent) to align the domain name on the cal instance from the dummy.nodomain or wdf.sap.corp to match some internal demands to make it simpler/easier to connect. We see this with Fiori, personas, etc...

What steps can we take on the instance to ensure this change occurs properly? It feels as if its several parts, and I'm also not clear on what is possible to change.

Thanks in advance for the guidance.

We changed the system names and made other required changes; an experienced Basis person should find these simple and quick, I think. However, I didn't do the work and don't have the details.

We registered the servers with an internal domain name without the dummy.nodomain.

We do have a remaining issue/workaround with the WebDynpro screens. It seems not all the tiles are Fiori (yet).

Hi Rohit,

Stanimir is the Expert and great to work with; I always defer to him 🙂

For us, it was a journey and I'm not sure we fully fulfilled it, but have it working fully with a workaround.

We changed/created DNS entries for the IPs, also did some Basis settings. Our solution activated was 1809 S4 Fully Activated. It is a bit interesting, the workaround applies to the tiles that call Webdynpros.

Hope this helps some, wish you the best on your journey.

Hi Rohit,

The system rename is not a trivial operation and it hardly depends on the underlying SAP product. We do not offer support for system rename in SAP CAL.

Thanks Stanimir,

So that means we have to use predefined hostname like vhcalS18ci vhcalS18ci.dummy.nodomain, we can not edit /etc/hosts file.

We are using S4 1809 product.
