This is from the XWS Advanced Analyst Guide:
Single Server Hostname Change
The Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the XWS server in a single server configuration is very essential. This name is at the heart of the communication for most modules such as XWS to DCE, XWS to Print Server, and others…
When the hostname of the XWS server is changed, a sequence of steps must be followed to ensure that the server remains properly operational. The hostname of the XWS system should always be the FQDN when entered in any XWS field.
Once the server name is changed and the Windows Operating system is restarted, this sequence of steps must be executed
I successfully migrated the XWS to another server, except for one thing.
Under Company > Settings > Content Storage it now warns: "This is a multi-server installation. The storage locations defined below must use a common shared UNC accessible path."
If I validate the Directory that is given, it fails with "Failed to connect to server [HECLA2.xxx.com]. Check to ensure the 'Xerox Mobile Print Host Service' is running."
The XMPHS is running, but the server name is wrong. HECLA2 is the old name of the server on which XWS is installed.
- how do I make it a single server, and
- how to correct the server name (I already did in the Xerox.MobilePrint.BULA.Service.exe.config file)
