Error DBA1501 The local system object is not allowed to be changed

Error DBA1501 The local system object is not allowed to be changed

Error DBA1501 The local system object is not allowed to be changed

(OP)
I changed my computer name and I need to change the name listed in DB2 Control Center under systems to match my new PC name.

When I try to change the name I get the following message

DBA1501 The local system object is not allowed to be changed

Is there a way to get around this? Registry? INI file somewhere? DLL file maybe?

Anyone had this issue before?

Thanks

RE: Error DBA1501 The local system object is not allowed to be changed

Found this on the web, which seems to detail roughly the steps I would expect to do.

Rename the node:
<node name> refers to the node name of your old system.
<new system> refers to your new system name.
1. db2 list admin node directory show detail
2. db2admin stop
3. db2 uncatalog node <node name>
4. db2 catalog admin local node <node name> system <new system> ostype NT with ‘<new system>’
5. db2 list admin node directory show detail
Set the new system name in the registry:
1. db2 terminate
2. db2set –g DB2SYSTEM=<new system>
3. db2admin start

Cheers
