HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Checking environment settings for Windows Vista users

Before you install HCL Workload Automation on a Windows Vista workstation that does not belong to a Windows domain, the environment settings need to be checked.

About this task

Before installation make sure that the workstation name and the domain name are both registered in uppercase in the Windows environment settings. When the workstation is not in a Windows domain, the COMPUTERNAME and USERDOMAIN values are identical, but on Vista the USERDOMAIN value is sometimes in lowercase even if the COMPUTERNAME is in uppercase.

Perform the following actions:
  1. Open a DOS command prompt shell.
  2. Run the set command to display the Windows environment settings.
  3. Check that the USERDOMAIN value is in uppercase. If not, follow this workaround to correct it:
  4. Run the set command to change the value of COMPUTERNAME to a temporary host name of your choice:
  5. Restart the system.
  6. Run the set command again as in step 4 replacing the temporary host name with the original one.
  7. Restart the system.
  8. Check that the USERDOMAIN value is now in uppercase.
