Is it possible to rename a SQL Server instance?
We cloned a dev server to create a new production server. Even though the name of the computer is different, when I bring up SQL Server management Studio, it shows the name of the source dev environment.
Is there a way to change it to new name to match the functionality? Or do we need to uninstall sql server and reinstall it all? I'm under a big time crunch so if i can rename it, I want to try that first.
Its sql server 2012.
