hi NagaRaju Meesala,

You install the server giving the server name. the name is tightly coupled with your WebAS. if you change your server name, you have to change in lots of places where your WebAS refers to your Computer Name.

Visit this <a href="/people/thomas.jung/blog/2006/02/03/as-abap-sneak-preview-lessons-computer-rename">Weblog</a> by <a href="">thomas Jung</a>. He claims to have renamed his computer and change the references(for Sneak Preview).

Hope that helped.

In my opinion, just revert back to your old name and things will work normally. but when you open up your server to the WWW, you may have a different name (any fancy name
