Q: How can I change the System Center Service Manager 2012 Portal name from SMPortal to something else?

A: The SMPortal default name is the name of the SharePoint site. To change the SharePoint site name, properties must be changed.

  1. Connect to the Service Manager 2012 web portal.
  2. From Site Actions, select Site Settings (see screen shot below).


  3. Under the Look and Feel section, select the Title, description, and icon link (see screen shot below).


  4. Enter the new name under Title, along with other details (see screen shot below).


  5. Click OK.

The new details will now show when accessing the site, as the screen shot below shows.
