Can you rename a machine in PME after it has been installed?


30 September 2021

Unfortunately you cannot do this. We have seen a variety of issues occur from doing this such as:

  • Web Application not being able to be accessed
  • Issues with logging of data
  • as well as many more issues

It is highly recommended to uninstall PME and delete the install directory which includes PME config along with DB's. Then rename the machine as needed (make sure it meets the machine naming requirements as per PME guide). After that you can install PME freshly again.
