Hello,

I have a Win 2k8 Server with SQL Server 2012, it is part of the domain.

Can I rename the Server ?
Will SQL Server enter in panic ?

Thanks for your help,

Is this a stand alone instance or a SQL cluster?

I would give this a read.  I don't know specifically about SQL 2012 but I know in SQL 2005 you had to rename the instance before renaming the server or it would cause issues.

So, i need to have the sql services running ?
I am not a SQL DBA or Expert.
Is that procedure a Query ?

Yes.

Strictly speaking it is a SQL Script.  But you run it just like you would any query from the SSMS Query window.
