Re: system name in access telnet screen and user displays



fixed

The rtvneta is one issue.
I want to verify IBM Content Manager (the 5.3 version) and other products that may use rtvneta or it's api.
(and it's not Bert & Ernie either)
Thanks
Jim

Ha for a moment there I though I knew where you worked. :-)

This is display only. Not for NetServer or SNA or IP or DB name etc.

***WARNING*** however. I HAVE seen where CUSTOMER programs do RTVNETA
and then based on the value returned for SYSNAME do 'stuff'. So while
this won't affect any IBM software it could affect yours!

So that change doesn't affect the Netserver config?
and this in host table BART.APPN.SNA.IBM.COM ? (not real name)

There are controllers on each system pointing to each other for SAVRSTLIB
Anynet is *Yes
This is V6R1.

Prompt CHGNETA and the very first name at the top is what shows on the
signon screen, etc. That name means nothing to communications, database,
etc. You can change it from Bart to Homer for example without affecting
the system. The bad news is it takes an IPL to become effective. :-(

Can the system name in the green screen telnet be altered without a real system name change?
Someone thought it funny long ago to name two systems after cartoon characters (don't ask..).
External users now see it. There is a lot of communications (external and between systems) to deal with.
Many screens and menus use SYSNAME.
Short of doing the actual CHGNETA and the associated changes (i know how to do this) and other option of changing everywhere SYSNAME is used (including a customized logon screen) to calc a diff name (users don't see IBM menus), any other options? I would think not, but need to ask.
