E1: UPG: INST: Install and Upgrade Guides Clarification: Length of Server Names and Special Characters Allowance (Doc ID 640121.1)

Last updated on JULY 28, 2017

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version SP24 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The latest JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Software Install and Upgrade Guides (see reference below) states that the names of the Deployment Server, Enterprise Server, Data Server, JAS Web Server, application server and client workstations cannot exceed 15 characters in length.
Is there is a workaround to the 15 characters or less requirement for the server's names such as DNS or an Alias if a customer has a naming convention that requires more characters? Also, a "Dash" (-) or an "Underscore" (_) are valid characters for a hostname?
