Default host name / service name

Please Login to Remove!

I just changed the computer name to new name Y but the service name still says X even after restarting services. How do I update the service name to match the new host name?

Would be nice if it were more clear during the first install.

Usually defaults to windows server name and most new BESAdmins just click next since it looks correct from a naming perspective.

it was correct at the time but moving geographical locations so not now(location in name). not sure why its like it is because you are rebooting after a AD computer name anyway so its not for uptime or because of different bes instances but i do notice that there are lots and lots of registry entries with this service name and not of host name so its not designed to easily automatically update.
