and

I haver read this https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.TECH67296 (How to migrate / move Backup Exec from one version to another on a different server with a differentserver name)

 

None of the articles match my case with different Windows OS verion and different servername.

Irrespective of the command you are running for the rename, I hope you have exported the DEK from the old server as you will need it on the new server.

BTW I think NEWSERVERNAME needs ot be surround by characters in the command
