The NAE Computer Name and Domain Name on the Network tab identify the NAE on the network so it can be found by other computers. In many commissioning scenarios, you can use the initial Computer Name to commission the NAE . See NAE Computer name for more information.

In most site configuration scenarios, you configure many of the Metasys network values in the NAE UI by downloading a pre-built archive database from the SCT to the commissioned NAE . The download from SCT overwrites the initial Computer Name with the new value for the Metasys network.

Note: If you are building the NAE database online, you must establish the production network NAE Computer Name value before you establish references to objects on the NAE . After creating object references, changing the Computer Name value breaks all object references to local objects on the site.
Important: The NAE Update Tool places restrictions on the host name (Computer Name) values that you can use for an NAE. Names must start with a letter or number, and must end with either a letter or a number, and may contain dashes only in the interior of the name. Refer to the NAE Update Tool Help (LIT-12011524) for more information on host name restrictions.
