You run a detection in SAP Landscape Virtualization Management but the hostname, communication or installation hostname of the detected instance is not correct


The instance may not be managed correctly with wrong hostname.


Detection, Hostname, Communication Hostname


For some system or network configuration, the SAP Landscape Virtualization Management may retrieve wrong hostnames for instances.


It is possible to change the hostnames of detected instances, before you assign them to a new or existing system. On the "Add Instances" step proceed as follows:

  1. Select Modify Host Names as Action.

  2. Enter the New Host Name, as installation hostname. The entry should be a non FQDN for SAP instances and databases.

  3. Enter the New Communication Host Name, a hostname which is used by SAP LVM to identifiy and communicate with the instance.

  4. To apply the changes, choose Modify.
