DEC server 700. I have a DEC Server 700 that I am unable to change the Prompt

this is the view I see what i use the command sho server:   The only setting we can see that is different from a unit  that is working is the prompt.  Can anyone tell me if there is a difference in how this unit works if the prompt is set to local instead of showing the server name?

thanks for your response!  I tried those settings and no luck.  Do you know if that settign makes a difference in how something connects and communicates?

you need double quotes around the new name.

 

it is cosmetic, not functiona.
