Benefits and Description

The Windchill Rehosting Utility reduces the time and effort needed to rehost Windchill configurations and data from, for example, production systems to test environments by providing a scriptable, repeatable, and reliable process.

The utility provides automation for the two most common use cases: renaming environments and rehosting datasets and also supports clusters, file Servers, and vault reconfiguration. The utility is designed to be malleable to individual customers’ unique rehosting requirements by allowing the execution order to be modified and extended through standard shell scripting.
