We are required to install SQL 6.5 by Mcafee ZAC suite...our problem is that we were flagged upon installation of SQL that we must rename our server...that is not going to happen...we know there is a way to get around that but the question is would we be loosing out on functionability and important features if we go that route. Is there any way around this problem or are we stuck in mud ?

SQL server accepts only your machine name as the server name .There is no other option but to rename ur machine name.
