Change CRM server name in MSCRM_Config

I've tried to change the name of a CRM server for testing purposes and from my research I found that in the MSCRM_CONFIG database, the server still shows as the old server.

here is the command that I used to find out the server:


How would I change the server name inside the MSCRM_CONFIG database to show the new server?
 My SQL knowledge is very limited.

Thank you!

I think you have two things to do:
1) Amend the registry keys at HKEY\Local_Machine\Software\MICROSOFT\MSCRM named configdb to point to the name of the new SQL server I(if that has been renamed) and ServerURL (if the URL to access CRM has changed).
2) For MSCRM_CONFIG database you can use:

use mscrm_config
Update server set name ='Newname' where name ='oldname'
