If you are looking for the Fully Qualified Domain Name then it is the name of the server you installed your SQL on.

That is found by right clicking my computer, properties, computer name on XP, 2003 - slightly different on 2008

Thanks for the quick response but they are not helping me, all i need to know is the FQDN of the sql server.

Lync 2010 is asking me for it , SQL server 2005 is installed and setup but need the FQDN of this sql?
is it just the FQDN on the server ?
