Thank you for your help with this. I have a weblogic9 domain that I am copying to a new test environment. Lets call the ENVs Test1 and Test2. After doing a rsync of test1 to test2 I went through the config.xml and renamed the test1 to test2 and the server starts up and runs great. But when I went to go change the machine name from TEST1 to TEST2 I get validation errors. I put in the command to ignore the schema validation when starting the admin but it was still unhappy. What is the easiest way to just rename the machine and server without having to completely delete it from the Admin console and recreate it? Thank you all in advance for your help with this.
