I've stumbled into an account where the AS/400 was setup by people that don't know the 400. I'm now looking at fixing some of the settings on this 400. My current problem is in the area of system names and network names.
The system value for the system name contains 'ABC400' (Well, not really, but the names have been changed...) and the network attribute for system name contains 'SYSTEM1'. While I know this is technically valid I would like to change the network name to bring it into sync with the system name (I want them both to be ABC400). No big deal, I can CHGNETA the network name. However, there are 50 some-odd PCs on the LAN that all have SYSTEM1 as the remote machine name. So my question is: Can I change the network name on the 400, but assign an alias such that client access connections will work correctly regardless of what name the PC uses for the 400, SYSTEM1 or ABC400?
And, just in case that wasn't bad enough, the 400 is also setup with a network name of AAA400 instead of APPN. Again a valid setup, but I want to change it to be APPN. Can I do this without effecting all the PCs?
Any help would be appreciated.
