Windchill rehosting

Hi!

I have renamed my Windchill instance, but I have trouble like here: https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS45021&posno=1&q=${rhost.wt.federation.ie....

1. I can't find the directory like: <Windchill_DRIVE>\tmp\ptcServlet

2. Where Windchill can keep cashed jndi information?

If you can't find the ptcServlet directory, don't worry about it. Just make sure to clear the info engine cache (<WT_HOME>\tasks\codebase\com\infoengine\compiledTasks).

If you've updated the web.xml file like in that article, cleared the info engine cache, and restarted, and you still see errors mentioning the ${rhost.*} values, then check your wt.properties file. These values can also occur in there. The below article gives the properties you should look at and what values they should be set to:

Thanks, Chris!

Method server is starting fine, but browser can't resolve the path like hostname/Windchill.

Windchill doesn't handle name resolution. If the issue is with resolving the Windchill hostname, that's a DNS issue. Though for testing, you can map the Windchill hostname to the IP address of the Windchill server in your client machine's hosts file.

DNS resolving path fine, because when I go to the hostname path Apache show me "It works!".
