Considerations About Renaming HANA Node Hostname
We have a task to change HANA server hostname from A to B.
As far as I know, we can use rename SAP HANA system function in HLM.
I have some concerns:
1. Should I need to manually change HANA hostname using OS command before or after executing rename in HLM?
2. Any addtional things should we perform after renaming.
Thanks & Best Regards,

Take a good backup. This process sometimes fails and you may need to restore OS/DB.
If possible update to SPS08 and use the Lifecycle Manager.
An alternative is to ask the hardware vendor to reinstall with the correct host and SID. This is the most reliable method.
Hope this helps!
