Hi all,

I have a server that will be replacing another (let's call the original SQL1, and the new one SQL1A).

Now when server 1A is ready to go live, it will be taking the place of SQL1. I take it when the server itself gets renamed when we go live, the instance of sql will remain as SQL1A.

If I want to change this with the least amount of trouble, what should I do?

Cheers

Shark

Be aware that if you have any remote logins set up on the instance, e.g. if you are using replication, the sp_dropserver command will error; you'll need to drop the remote logins first.

You can look here: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic271619-146-1.aspx

There should be plenty of past posts asking similar items.

I'm in the middle of the process myself with a 2000 to 2005 move.
