the appserver doesn't need to be up to use blasadmin.
But if I connect to blasadmin I haven't data in the show fileserver.
If a do the set fileserver name and location won't work.
I don't know have to change the fileserver name and location in this case.
To change future application servers, blasadmin must be run against the _template deployment. Please refer to the chapter 'Configuring the Application Server' in the Administration Guide for further information.
blasadmin now running against deployment: default
Bladelogic Admin Utility; Version 8.9.04.200.

Type 'help' for Bladmin help.
available options: [location|name]
location - The full path of the file server location (i.e. /c/Program Files/BMC BladeLogic/OM/storage/). The location should include a trailing ''/''.
name - the name of the fileserver
you might be running into the problem described in this ka: 000136584
I try to run but the root_path is cut in the space:
C:\Users\bmcadmin\Desktop\ScriptsSQL\file_server_change>file_server_change_sqlserver_system_property WIN-4BBPH8OTNQD sa TSA WIN-PFHT7R212QT /C/Program Files/BMC Software/BladeLogic/storage/
Updating the BLOM database located at SQL Server [WIN-4BBPH8OTNQD], Database [TSA]
Connecting as the user [sa]
Setting up the default file server to host [WIN-PFHT7R212QT], root folder [/C/Program]
In the documentation says this:
file_server_change_sqlserver_system_property <sqlsrv> <usr> <db> <fs> <rf>
<sqlsrv> - name of the SQL Server hosting the BLOM database
<usr> - name of the SQL Server user that has the db_owner role
<db> - name of the database hosting the BLOM database
<fs> - host name of the new default file server
<rf> - location of the file server root folder; if root folder
contains spaces it needs to be enclosed into double quotes;
e.g. C:\BMC Software\File Server 1 should be entered as
"/C/BMC Software/File Server 1/".
NOTE: File server record must already exist, otherwise an error will be
But if I executed with double quotes doesn't work:
C:\Users\bmcadmin\Desktop\ScriptsSQL\file_server_change>file_server_change_sqlserver_system_property WIN-4BBPH8OTNQD sa TSA WIN-PFHT7R212QT "/C/Program Files/BMC Software/BladeLogic/storage/"
Files/BMC was unexpected at this time.
I have tried to escape in several forms but I can't executed the sql correctly.
How can I run the sql to have a path with spaces??
Do you know a possible solution to do the called file_server_change_sqlserver_system_property fine?
I need to change the fileserver path but the sql doesn't work with a path with spaces. I have tried to escape in several ways but it's impossible for me.
if you are running blasadmin and getting blank values for the file server, then you are probably hitting the problem in that ka and we need to fix that. and then you can use blasadmin to set the file server path. so i would focus on getting blasadmin to show values, because that needs to work.
what's the history of this env ? are you making a copy of the env or just moving the file server ?
We have access to the blasadmin commands correctly.
It was a mistake in the use of the commands.

Adding for future reference, help to others.
Origin of this environment was a clonning of VMs (deployment from OVFs) to speed up PoC installation.
To check DB is resolved by hostname and not IP, from blasadmin
bladmin:default> show Database ConnectionString
To see FileServer config values:
bladmin:default> show FileServer all
(or "show FileServer location" and "show FileServer name")
To change FileServer from IP to hostname
bladmin:default> set FileServer name <hostname>
