Hi,
i have a issue with SQL 2005 Clustered when trying to install Microsoft Operations Manager Database on it.

I get this error : The computer name has changed after SQL server was installed. SQL server must be reinstalled.

The name of the sql server has never been change.

If i run :
SELECT @@Servername
SELECT ServerProperty('machinename')
i get:
1  ndsql1
and
1 NDSQL1

Does case matter ?

I stuck at this point, i need to move my MOM database to this server as soon as possible.

Thanks , but i  already followed this KB before asking the question here.
The only thing in this KB that im not sure is this part:

Select @@servername Select ServerProperty('machinename')
The names returned should match in spelling and case.

But does it really matter? the first result is in LowerCase and the ServerProperty result are in Uppercase.

do to the rename i need to restart the server, i need to schedule this and i want to know all my options before scheduling a downtime. So if it doesn't work i can try something else.

If you read the KB is says:

"The MOM Prerequisite checker looks at two entries for the computer name, and the entries must match in case and in name".
