DX/MS DX for Windows 6.2x - Server Rename Caused Problems

ISSUE
After server was renamed, the Extended drives still show the old server name and Available Media it shows 2 sets of the Optical Volumes one off line from the old server and one on line for the new server.

SOLUTION
Stopped DX and MS Services Went into Reg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\DiskXtender\ExtendedDrives and for each drive (3), changed the key for Computer Name from to . After this, I restarted the DX service and launch the DX Admin. Was prompted for the drive wiz again, this time, it found the drives and updated them appropriately. I can not open the DX Admin and the extended drives come online. Next, under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\EMC\XMS\Service, I deleted the service key that reference the old servername. Still have dup, media in DX. Next, under keys HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\EMC\XMS\Media Pool (3 pools, one for each drive), deleted all of the media keys referencing and kept all media keys referencing . started services all is as it should be.
