Rename SQL Server
Posted on 2011-03-21
I'm not sure if I'm worrying to much, but I currently have a Windows 2003 Server that functions as an AD, DNS, File and Sql server. I want to take it off the current domain, rename it, then add to a new domain.
When I do this, will it also rename the SQL database instance i.e. from oldservername\DBname to newservername\DBname or will it keep the old instance name? If so, what do I need to do to make sure that when I rename, my database can then be reached again by clients?
