I had a db server crash and burn after a bad power event. I have reinstalled the SQL and the databases (SQL and D3) on a new server and recreated the DSN settings with the new server name. But when I try to execute a set of commands I get the following error:
Server: Msg 7202, Level 11, State 2, Procedure shipping_data_fill, Line 2
Could not find server 'act1' in sysservers. Execute sp_addlinkedserver to add the server to sysservers.
"act1" is the name of a data source where I changed the connection to reflect the new server name. The old server was named "ACT1SERVER" so I am guessing that this refers to the dsn entry rather than the actual server name.
If the DSN is pointing to the new server (which is the local server) why does it still reference the old configuration? When I check the sysservers table the new server does exist. If I add in an "act1" entry I don't get the sysserver error but an error that the server does not exist.
