In the installation guide, SAP advices us to change the *LOCAL relational database name to match the hostname.
However, currently my system already has an *LOCAL rdb name entry which follows the default machine/serial number name . The command using CHGRDBDIRE advised by SAP doesnt allow changing the name for *LOCAL entry.
The only method to change the name is to delete the default *LOCAL rdb name and recreate a new *LOCAL entry. Is it safe do to so ? IT contains the objects the QGPL and QTEMP schema now.
Kikco, Yes, this is easy. Whenever you do CHGRDBDIRE from the system you are on, ie, DEV, *LOCAL would be next to what you named your Dev box. Same with QAS, when you run the command on the QAS you would see that as *LOCAL. All other systems defined would show your host name or IP address. Hope this helps.
