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?

Re: Windchill rehosting

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!

Re: Windchill rehosting

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

Re: Windchill rehosting

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.

Re: Windchill rehosting

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