DBCA not recognizing sid after running DBNEWID

Hi everyone,

I used  DBNEWID on an 11g database to rename the database.   Everything looks correct in environmental variables  ( sid, services, instance, global name  etc).   The database is working fine.  I even have the dbconsole up and running .   However, when I try to run DBCA  to reconfigure the database it does not recognize the new name ( sid) .  It only sees the old name .  I have not been able to find where  DBCA pulls the sid list from .  Any ideas would be appreciated.

Check the values under in the following registry setting

\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE\HOMEn

DBCA pulls information from /etc/oratab in UNIX systems. The above Windows registry location is where DBCA pulls information for Windows systems. Changes might be needed there to reflect the new SID
