The /special value/ *LOOPBACK [i.e. what Mark suggested] would seem to be a better choice than what was already done. That is because if the IP address of that server partition ever changes, then the RDB Entry pointing to *LOOPBACK [remaining unresolved at create-time] would not suddenly fail to connect locally or suddenly attempt to effect a connection to a system with the old IP address. Those might be potential issues if that RDB Directory Entry does not get updated to specify the same value as the changed-to\new IP address. If not explicitly *LOOPBACK, then using the address of would seem to be an option, as the probable _localhost_ loop-back host address.

I already used ADDRDBDIRE with the system's IP address as the
RMTLOCNAME of the IP address. Would loopback work better?

Just issue:

That will add the "old name" back again, to the Relational
Database Directory Entries -- you can issue WRKRDBDIRE to see them

That way, your users do not have to change all of those documents,
etc. (preserves compatibility with the past).
