Build/Deploy fails after server move

We are on JDE E1 9.0, tools 9.1.4.7.

This weekend, our IT team moved our JDE non production servers (enterprise server and web server) to another location. IP addresses changed in the process. After the server move, testing our non production systems seem to go ok. We could not find anything that referenced the servers by IP address so we though we'd be ok.

However, the problem we have found is on our deployment server (JDEDEPLOY). When I try to build and deploy a package to test after the server move, it fails. The build appears to function ok, but the deploy ends in error with a message that 'File not found'.

In the logs, for both the build and the deploy, we are getting errors that our non prod enterprise server, JDEENTD, can't be found.

So it appears that somewhere on the deployment server, JDEENTD is referenced by IP address, but we can't find it.

Any advice on how to find the reference that might need to be changed, we would appreciate any assistance.

It's an OS level thing, file is located here c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts Make sure you don't have JDEENTD hard coded to its original IP address.

It's not a JDE table, it's an operating system configuration file. Look in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc for a file called hosts. That is where you can connect a machine name to an IP address manually (not using a name server)

Yes, I found the hosts file at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc. Don't see anything though that would help us. I've been told by the IT team that they server move would change the IP address for JDEENTD from 10.12.3.142 to 173.something. So we are thinking somewhere we will find this 10.12.3.142 reference or JDEENTD reference.

Here is the results for my nslookup. Looks like its referencing the new IP address 172.17.3.124, but the old one too somehow 10.12.3.124.

Ask your network guys what the DNS TTL is. If DNS still has not updated the new IP address your name lookup will return the old IP address.

Also, do ipconfig /flushdns on the Deployment server.
