When a Dollar Universe node is installed with the wrong Company / Node name, since there are no user settings already applied it is possible to change the company name value using the unirefactorinst command

The Unirefactorinst command syntax is documented in the online documentation (CA Automic Dollar Universe Guides) but here is a sample of what can be found:

Refactor Instance

The command unirefactorinst allows to change the identification of a newly installed Company, without user settings. Typically, this command allows to instantiate a Dollar Universe Company during a virtual machine deployment.


  • Full stop of the Company to change (Stop all on Windows)
  • Execute the Company logical environment unienv


unirefactorinst –company <arg> -node <arg> -host <arg> –port <arg> -tags <arg> -label <arg> -mslogin <arg> –mspwd <arg> –msport <arg> -mshost <arg>


Example: Changing the Dollar Universe node name:

unirefactorinst -node FRWPMDEV_ECA -mshost FRWPMDEV53 -msport 4184 -mslogin admin -mspwd admin > c:\temp\unirefactorinst.log
