When we install a MSSQL Server instance, can we use a custom instance name? E.g. If I am installing on hostname -serverA, my only choices are serverA ( default instance ), or serverA\dev if I chose "dev" as my named instance.

However I wish to install SQL server as instance serverB.

I need this for Disaster recovery.

Please advise,
Thanks ... Bharat

If I'm understanding you correctly, you are asking if you could install a sql server instance called serverB on a physical server called serverA. However, when you make a connection to it, you want to just want to connect to "serverB".

My guess is that it is not possible.

Why not just name both instances. ServerA\instance1, ServerA\instance2?
