New 5.7 install no mdshosts file

New 5.7 install no mdshosts file

I just installed a micros 3700 ver 5.7 on a new windows 10 machine and everything is working.. kinda, got the database uploaded but I cant find the mdshosts file anywhere. So im pretty much stuck. Should I drop in the one off my old set up?

Thanks in advance.

RE: New 5.7 install no mdshosts file

Did you license your hosts?
Does the new server name match what was in the database?
Is this a new database or import?
UAC disabled?

RE: New 5.7 install no mdshosts file

No i never changed the name of the server to micros on initial install of windows. I tried changing new server name to "micros" what i had the old server named but now it has me locked out of everything. This it is a back up of old data base. Any help is much appreciated.

RE: New 5.7 install no mdshosts file

I would uninstall micros, match the name of the server to the original server and reinstall micros.

RE: New 5.7 install no mdshosts file

you can try setname.exe utility come along with the media kit and that would change the same as you want. And then you can change the node name from POSConfigurator.
reduce UAC and make sure you have desired server name in system32/drivers/etc/hosts file.
Then restart the server and it should automatically create when 3700d and MDS host service start.
