I am working with a database admin. She needs me to create a CNAME on our DNS server that points to a specific "instance" on a SQL server. I created a basic CNAME and pointed it at the server where SQL is installed but it right now she sees it as pointing to the default instance. I am not a SQL person, but is there a way for me to create a CNAME or even a HOST entry and point it to a specific instance within a SQL server? Not just the server itself? We are using Windows 2012 and SQL 2012.
