How to Update Lawson Database

To update the database server that your Lawson instance is pointing to, you will need to modify the MICROSOFT (or ORACLE) files for each environment that you are updating.  These files can be found at %LAWDIR%/DATAAREA/MICROSOFT.  Simply change the server name for the DBSERVER value and bounce your Lawson services.

NOTE: This article assumes that your new database server utilizes the same credentials/authorization as the original database server.
