How can I correctly change my CaliberRM Server name?


Solution: There are a couple of methods that could be used to plan for a name change of the CaliberRM Server...

Method 1: (Simplistic but possibly time consuming depending on internal process or DB size)
***Take a backup of the current database and ensure working by restoring to a secondary machine.
***Uninstall CaliberRM Client and Server and restart the machine
***Change the name of the Server and restart
***Reinstall CaliberRM and confirm working against Sample DB
***Restore backup of the current database.

Method 2: (Slightly more technical, but potentially a significant time saver for larger implementations)
- stop current database "dbmgr -stop", "stopdb SQMDB"
- stop service "SQM Database"
- update key for "server" at location below to reflect new server name
- Update Environment Variable VERSANT_DBID_NODE to reflect new machine name
- Update Control Panel-->CaliberRM Server-->Database Server to reflect new machine name
- Change Server Name
- Restart machine which will then restart CaliberRM\Versant services to look at the variables changed
