  • go run =>cmd-->

    sqlcmd -L   see which instance name is showing..

    To verify that the renaming operation has completed successfully

    check sql server.

    SELECT @@SERVERNAME AS 'Server Name';

  • Hi,

    USE Master
    Select ServerProperty('ServerName')
    Select @@ServerName
    Select primary_server from msdb.dbo.log_shipping_monitor_primary

    Do you get same server name after running above query?
