Even though both these come from the SQL installation, they are different. How could that have happened?

Are they looking at 2 diff source, even though they are derived from the installation?

Thanks

From the BoL:
"Although the @@SERVERNAME function and the SERVERNAME property of SERVERPROPERTY function may return strings with similar formats, the information can be different. The SERVERNAME property automatically reports changes in the network name of the computer.In contrast, @@SERVERNAME does not report such changes. @@SERVERNAME reports changes made to the local server name using the sp_addserver or sp_dropserver stored procedure."

select SERVERPROPERTY('SERVERNAME')  corresponds correctly to the machine name and the default instance also.

*confused*  Sorry, didn't realize this was still under discussion:

What happens if you execute:
sp_addserver 'local'
and then compare?

Thanks Razmus,
just to confirm

with the current state being:
select SERVERPROPERTY('SERVERNAME') is JMRW185422
select @@SERVERNAME is CO6849B546

you recommend the foll:
sp_addserver 'local'
to see if the 2 results will sync up?

Yes.
 That's based upon: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms174411.aspx
"Specifying @local as LOCAL defines @server as the name of the local server and causes the @@SERVERNAME function to return the value of server. "
