Our client requested an update of their test company and also to rename it. We backed up the production company and renamed it over a VPN connection. It seemed to work fine. We are trying to rename the production company back to the original name and are experiencing some seemingly odd things. It appears to be stuck in a loop (based on the messages that appear in the bottom toolbar).
It is a SQL database, but we are using the Navision backup, rename and restore functions. We have checked some previous posts which indicate that the rename could take a very long time. Ours ran overnight and still did not complete - we thought it was possibly in an endless loop and ended it. Is it likely it was still running properly - the database is about 6 Gb, the company we were trying to rename had an .fbk of about 600 Mb. The first time we renamed it took about 5 hours. The time frame seems very drastically different. We also tried it on a test machine with their DB and the rename occurred in about 5 minutes.?! Why so many differences?
If anyone has any suggestions or explanations we would appreciate it.
