Hello I am getting the following error trying to work with replication between 2 SQL servers.
By the way, I am not sure if this matters but i want the distributor to be SQL 7 and the client to be
SQL 2000.

The error i am getting is:
---
SQL Server Enterprise Manager could not complete the wizard because @@SERVERNAME for '' is NULL.
Use sp_AddServer to set @@ServerName
---

By the way, I tried to execute sp_AddServer and restarted the server but did not work. This is What
i typed:
Exec sp_AddServer 'MyServer'
It did not return any error. But it did not help.

Please help.
Thank you,
