Renaming a PDMLink replica sever

Renaming a PDMLink replica sever

Has anyone been successful renaming a PDMLink replica server?

I have asked PTC Tech Support about this and they response was that this is
not possible.

Renaming a PDMLink replica sever

David,

Although not supported (Since no UI exists), it's worth a try to update the
database table row that indicates the name for the replica server. I would
conduct detailed testing to ensure rest of the application such as the
replication schedule queue, replication rules, replication server
connectivity, etc are not impacted.

Following are some steps and validation points (add to this list, if I
missed any items unique to your setup):
a) Stop / disable replication schedule queue
b) Export replication rules to examine the name.
c) Rename the replication server within the the database
d) Check via the Replication Administrator if the name took into effect
e) Import the updated replication rules if needed
f) Check user preferences for replica sites to ensure the name change is
taken into effect
g) Check if you can download existing files from the replication server, add
new files into the replication server
h) lastly, check if the replication actually works by turning back the
replication scheduler queue.
