Introduction:

This article shows you how to change a name of a system (LPAR) in the GUI for Dynamic Capacity Intelligence (DCI)

Instructions:

Every system (LPAR) is shown in the original name from your system in the GUI. If you want to change this names to make it more visible for you you can do this. Every change you do, do in the custom folder of the USS filesystem to DCI only. Please make sure that you are using the correct path for your changes. So please change the routes.xml for this:

Example:

C222 - Original name2.png

This is an example to change the original name of C222.LPB1.SYB1 (see example for an config.xml below). We want change the name LPB1.SYB1 to PROD.SYB1. Now you can do the changes in the config.xml that is stored in the custom folder. To change the name you have to generate this little config.xml in the custom folder. If there a config.XML exits you can add the definitions for the new name:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<CONFIG>
    <TRANSLATION>
        <SERIES>
            <SERIE>
                <ID>C222.LPB1.SYS1</ID>
                <NAME>PROD.SYB1</NAME>
            </SERIE>
        <SERIES>
    </TRANSLATION>
</CONFIG> 

 

<ID>C222.LPB1.SYS1</ID>  
C222 is your CPC Name from this system
LPB1 is the LPAR name in this system
SYB1 is your SYSID

 

<NAME>PROD.SYB1</NAME>

PROD.SYB1 is the new name you want to use for the GUI

It could happen that you have still a definiton for this system in your config.xml e.g. a different color.

<SERIE>
    <ID>C222.LPB1.SYS1</ID>
    <COLOR>#FF997C</COLOR>
</SERIE>

 

Then you just have to add the new name like:

<SERIE>
    <ID>C222.LPB1.SYS1</ID>
    <NAME>PROD.SYB1</NAME>
    <COLOR>#FF997C</COLOR>
</SERIE>

Then the GUI looks like:
