SAP Netweaver Installation using Virtual Hostname

Hello Gurus,

I am gathering some information on Virtual Hostname installation for SAP Netweaverver 7.0/7.1(PI).

Have few questions:

1. Please let me know some good documentation and concept of Virtual Hostname for Windows/Solaris.

2.What are the major benefits of using Virtual Hostname .

3.Is Virtual Hostname usage and MSCS HA are related in some way.

Waiting for your replies.

Hi Ajay,

Yes, those Notes can be used to change the hostname. You will see, however, that the process is not without risk, especially for Java. The export/import I referred to primarily referred to the DB, which is the only available method. There may be other Notes to check, too. I have not done a search lately.

Best Regards,
