Deploy Pending - 800xA 6.1
Now the customer requested a different system name than what I have created.
Since it is the biggining pahse so I decided to meet the customer requiremet.
I took the backup of Admin structure aspects (System configuration and System Configuration State).
Manually deleted all client and servers except Primary aspect server (removed the system registry entry except FFFFFF and delete OperateITData and OperateITTemp)
Using SCC removed all nodes from Primary Aspect Server. Using configuration wizard stop the system in Primary aspect server and deleted the system in Primary aspect server. Now the 800xASystem is completely removed. How to come out of the deployed state from all nodes, other than reinstalling 800xA softwares ?
I don't have acronis image after 800xA software installation, to restore to installed state.
Restarted all nodes. Tried to create the system with correct system name required. When I try to deploy the nodes it showing "Pending". Tried to deploy the node throughout the night but no luck.Please see the attached screen shots. Node installation status showing as "waiting".
Any work rounds or suggestions are appreciable.
It is not possible to delete and recreate a new system in 800xA 6.1, if system is already deployed one time with a different name ?
I am not aware if System Name can be changed by using System Configuration Console (SCC), but you could try the following:
1) Start an 800xA Engineering Workplace
2) Browse to [Admin Structure]Administrative Objects/Domains/<System Name>
3) Locate <System Name>:Name Aspect
4) Change content of <System Name>:Name Aspect
P.s. at least this procedure works in SV5.1
I hope the above might help you
Some software can simply not be uninstalled from Microsoft Windows allowing a second try, therefore System Installer will block subsequent attempts to deploy a node even if just the system name has been changed.
Hence: always take a drive image of every node (in a non-NPT and non-deployed state) to have available at hand when you want to reconstruct parts of or the entire system.
Renaming sounds simple, but it is not an outspoken officially supported method. There may be some cheat available, I don't know. I recommend to stick to officially published methods.
If would also try out undocumented procedures in some virtual, sandboxed system to avoid e.g. ending up having to install Microsoft Windows from scratch.
