Change server name in Netware 6.5 sp 8

I need to change the name of a server running Netware 6.5 sp 8.  I have edited the autoexec.ncf file and changed the name, ran the following dstrace commands and dsrepair
SET DSTRACE = ON
SET DSTRACE = +LIMBER
SET DSTRACE = *L
SET DSTRACE = *H



When I open consoleone I see that the name of the server has changed.  However all of the pools and volumes are still listed as server_xxxxx in consoleone and on my PC when I go to network I still see an entry for the original name.  If I open it all of the volumes are listed there.

How do I get everything changed to reflect the new server name and get all references to the old server name removed?

Thanks for any suggestions

I figured out most of it.  I had not gone into nssmu and updated NDS.   Once I did that the original server was removed from Network on my PC and the pools were renamed.

IIRC, volumes do not get renamed automatically, but you can simply use the console to rename them.

You should probably run PKIDIAG and TCKEYGEN as well.  The security certificates for the machine will be using the old host name.  The trouble this causes won't be immediately apparent, but will eventually catch up with you.

Thanks for the comments.  Sorry I haven't had a chance to respond before this.  I managed to get the server , pools, and volumes renamed last night and I then ran PKIDiag and TCKeyGen followed by DSRepair to make sure everything was updated correctly and in sync.
