This document explains how to rename an SAP system using the System Rename 1.0 tool, which is based on the installation tool.
System Rename 1.0 tool can be used for adapting:
SAP system ID
Instance numbers of the instances on the SAP system
System Rename procedure is valid for ABAP, Java & Dual-stack (ABAP and Java) systems. Also you can perform the system rename on both central and distributed systems, however high availability & MCOD installation were still not supported till System Rename 1.0 SP03 (which I am using in this document).
Please read Note 1619720 – System Rename for SAP Systems based on SAP NetWeaver & SAP Guide for details.
System rename 1.0 media is available at http://service.sap.com/swdc
Unpack the System Rename archive with SAPCAR and Run sapinst.exe
The follow-up activities for the system rename are identical with the follow-up activities for a system copy described in the system copy guide.
Also perform activities like Re-Configuring STMS, SLD & IGS RFC.
