I had MSSQL server 6.5 now I installed 7.0 beta 3 for learning purposes.
I did not upgrade my previous server I wanted them live side by side for learning purposes.
Everything was okay, but 7.0 was automatically called with the same name as 6.5
Now I cannot reach my 6.5 server
How to rename new 7.0  server.
Sincerely Matt

This is not possible. you can not have two SQL Servers installed on the same server and have different name. SQL Server takes the name of the server and it can't be changed. The best you can do is shutdown 7. when you are running 6.5 and the other way around.
