"Error Loading Service Inventory" error in Power Monitoring Expert

Issue
The following exception occurs in the SystemLog:

Source: Report Data Service
Description: Error loading service inventory
Exception: System.ServiceModel.EndpointNotFoundException: There was no endpoint listening at http://ted-pc:23102/CoreServicesHost/Inventory/InventoryService that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details. ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote name could not be resolved: 'ted-pc' at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetRequestStream(TransportContext& context) at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetRequestStream() at System.ServiceModel.Channels.

Notes:
1. In the above, 'ted-pc' refers to old server name (the server was renamed).
2. It is assumed that the system is put back in service and the system is operational. All components (Management Console, Designer, Vista, Web) are in working condition (not the topic of discussion in this article).
3. Even though the system is fully operational, the events occur approximately every 25 minutes.

Product Line
Power Monitoring Expert 8.x (PME 8.x)
Could apply to any version with ...\System\ReportDataService\ folder

Environment
Web.config file located in ...\System\ReportDataService\

Cause
The problem was caused as a result of renaming the server.  

Resolution

1. Navigate to the '...\Power Monitoring Expert\System\ReportDataService' folder.
2. Open (Edit) the Web.config file in a text editor such as Notepad.
3. Change all occurrences of the old server name to the new server name and save the file.
