I monitor the activities of my users through the SQL Server 2005 Management Studio - Activity Monitor.
The hostname column in the Activity Monitor used to report correctly the hostname of the client PC.
But I have some client PC that Activity Monitor reported the hostname wrongly -
I clone the PC (using Norton Ghost) and renamed (from say OldHost) the hostname before release for production use -
But Activity Monitor reported the hostname as the "OldHost"!
Where did SQL Server get the hostname connected from?
How can I rectify this problem?
