A system data instance specifies a system name and the production level of your entire PRPC system. The system name is sometimes called the system ID. Normally, All nodes in one system have a common system name.

You can choose a system name during installation; you can change the system name at any time after installation.

TipAs a best practice, choose a distinct system name for each of the systems (such as development, test, quality-assurance, or production) in your organization.

Your system may contain multiple Data-Admin-System data instances. You can't determine which one of these is current from the data instances themselves.

On the clipboard Process page, property pxProcess.pxAdminSystem.pxSystemName identifies the current system name.
