Have you renamed the Windows server since sql server was installed?

To remove the current servername entry use


exec sp_dropserver 'abcxyz'



Then run this to correct it


exec sp_addserver 'abcdef', 'local'

Is this on a cluster? When you say "server property" what are you selecting exactly?

@@servername will give the local machine name, except in a failover cluster, where it will give you the virtual server name

serverproperty('computernamephysicalnetbios') should give you the local machine name. In a failover cluster this is the machine name of the active node

Was the server renamed at some point? Can you post the results of the following:

SELECT SERVERPROPERTY(InstanceName), SERVERPROPERTY('MachineName'), SERVERPROPERTY('ComputerNamePhysicalNetbios'), SERVERPROPERTY('IsClustered')
