Good Day,
We are running SQL Server 2005 on WIndows 2003 . We renamed the servername on the Operating System and a few seconds later I detected that the name in SQL Server was also changed . Does this now suggest that sp_dropserver and sp_addserver are now obsolete ? Any ideas ?

Thanks .

If you run SELECT [name] FROM sys.servers, do you see the old server name, or the new one?

John,
thank you for your e-mail. I ran the query as suggested by you. The only name that is displayed is the new name of the server .

Regards.
