Hyper-V uninstall server 2008 r2 standard changed computer name
Posted on 2014-10-12
I installed Hyper-V on a production server 2008 r2. After realizing I didn't want to use it I removed the Virtual server, which was never started, and uninstalled the hyper-v role.
Now the server name has been changed to the name given to the hyper-v server.
When I open server manager it gives me an error "Device manager is running in read only mode because you are running it on a remote computer"
In server manager at the top it says my server name is "WIN-IPE632OG13D" instead of "SQL1" like it should be.
This is causing some SQL1 service to not run. The main SQL database has not been affected and it is still in production.
I need to get this back to SQL1. Any help is appreciated.
