Cause:

This error has been observed on a server that had been renamed after the original installation of SQL Server, and where the SQL Server configuration function ‘@@SERVERNAME’ still returned the original name of the server. This can be confirmed by:

select @@SERVERNAME
go

This should return the name of the server. If it does not then follow the procedure below to correct it.

Remedy:

To resolve the problem the server name needs to be updated. Use the following:

sp_addserver 'real-server-name', LOCAL

if this gives an error complaining that the name already exists then use the following sequence:

sp_dropserver 'real-server-name'
go
sp_addserver 'real-server-name', LOCAL
go

If instead the error reported is 'There is already a local server.' then use the following sequence:

sp_dropserver old-server-name
go
sp_addserver real-server-name, LOCAL
go

Where the "old-server-name" is the name contained in the body of the original error.

Stop and restart SQL Server.

Hi,
I have a sql serve 2008 running on my cloud server. I have configured a publisher in the server. Now I want to create a subscription in my local SQL 2008 server but I am getting this message

'sql server replication requires the actual server name to make a connection to the server'

Can anyone help me in this matter?
