Computer renamed or changed
Overview
During the development phase, you may have to change the computer used for development (change computer, rename the computer, ...).
The SCM must be informed of this modification: indeed, SCM stores in the database the name of the computer from which the different operations are performed. This information must be updated in the SCM database whenever a rename operation is performed.
Caution: If you change computer without performing these operations, a message will indicate that the element is checked out on another computer (the former computer).
