Local server name

  Asked By: Keaton    Date: Nov 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 996

When I setup this server, I hadn't had my domain name yet, so I set it up using local names. I thought I changed everything when I got the domain created. However, now when attempting to do several things, it still refers to the local name. So, instead of going to http://sp.mysite.net it's now going to http://apollo/...

How exactly can I change this?

To follow up - particularly when attempting  to configure the mail settings in AlertsAdmin

If the problem is with Alerts, Microsoft has a "rename server" utility for Sharepoint that will rewrite the URLs in the Alert entries and put your new name in them. I got it from our TAM and used it on WSS v2 and it worked pretty well. I imagine you could get it from PSS too.
