Managing embedded server names

This section contains information about:

BMC Remedy Migrator replaces all object references to the source server with the name of the destination server when migrating from one server to another. When trying to determine if an object references the source server, BMC Remedy Migrator uses the name of the server you defined in the Accounts dialog box.

For example, if you define the server as a fully qualified host name (such as source.domain.com), BMC Remedy Migrator uses source.domain.com as the name of the server it replaces. Any references to the unqualified name source are not replaced. If you define the server name as only source, BMC Remedy Migrator replaces any references it finds to both the unqualified name source and the fully qualified host name source.domain.com. BMC Remedy Migrator considers source.domain.com, source.some.otherdomain.com, and source.domain.net to be the same server.

The following table outlines what happens to server references when BMC Remedy Migrator replaces the reference for servers named "source" with the reference "destination," when both of the servers are in the*domain.com* domain.
