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

THANK YOU!!.  That was it.  I hadn't set up auto start of oracle on this db yet so didn't notice that.  Thanks again!!
