The logical name of a database file went out sync after running following statement.

ALTER DATABASE UserDataBase MODIFY FILE (NAME = 'FileNameOld', NEWNAME = 'FileNameNew')

It updated the name column of sys.master_files table correctly to "FileNameNew" but the name column of sys.Database_files table remained as "FileNameOld".

Does anyone know the cause of it and how to fix the problem? Thanks in advance.

You need to do a SQL server service re-start for the change to take place but it may be tricky in cluster environment. If your db is attached to a SQL server not a SQL cluster then restart should do it.
