How do I change the name of my computer without interfering with M-Files functionality?

If documents are checked out to the client in question when its name changes, edited information may be lost. This is because checkouts are user and computer-specific. The computer is identified by its name. After the name is changed, M-Files considers the checkouts to belong to another computer and does not allow the user to access the edited information.

Check in all documents and items from the computer before changing the computer's name.
