AOS Environment Name in Developer Workspace

02 Dec

One of my colleagues found this interesting piece of information today and I would like to share

Often when we want to see what AOS we are connected to we turn on ‘Show AOS Name’ in Tools->Options->Status Bar.


Then we see the AOS Name in the status bar:


The only problem is that is not necessarily the AOS name.  This is just the name given to the AOS in the config file (.axc).  If we look at the .axc in notepad there is a line for this name and we can change it here:


And see the change in the AX status bar:


So if the .axc was created incorrectly using the status bar to identify the AOS could be dangerous.  It would probably be a better idea to always check the port number in the .axc file and compare it to the configurations listed in the server configuration utility.
