Servername is Incorrect

SQL2K

When I register a server [ISASRV1] through Enterprise Manager , I Can see correct servername is there.

But the result of
select srvid, srvname  from master.dbo.sysservers order by srvid
is
Srvid         srvname
0      ISASRV
1      HP_SPIN_LOC

The srvname ISASRV is incorrect. It should have been ISASRV1.

You can fix this by executing follwoing code.

exec sp_dropserver 'ISASRV', 'droplogins'

then restart the server.

Then execute the same query
"select srvid, srvname  from master.dbo.sysservers order by srvid"

you will find ISASRV1 for svrid 0.

Hi Mateen,
By default update to any system table like (sysobjects, syscolumns) is not allowed.
to allow updates on such system tables you have to configure your server to allow updates as chhapia_chintak suggested.
