Editing Server DNS host name?

[ Edited ]

One of the people here apparently configured the Server DNS host name wrong when they installed Enterprise Guide 7.1.  They listed only the first node, prd01, but on my machine (which is working) I have the fully qualified name, prd01.mcp.srxc.int (all four nodes).

 

Is there a way we can edit the server DNS host name?  I believe this is the value contained in macro variable &_SASHOSTNAME

 

I suppose we could just uninstall/reinstall, but it seems like this should be a 2 second change if I could just figure out what xml file or such to edit.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Jim

 

P.S.  Just to be clear:  This is not the Connection Profile I'm talking about here.

Well, embarrassingly, it turns out that it was not a SAS EG issue at all.  The TCPIP settings were wrong on that machine, and it just happened to affect SAS EG.  Problem solved though.
