How to change Instance Name of SQL Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, this is Mustangs2 and I was wondering the same thing, so in reserching I found a link you might be interested in checking out. I hope it helps.

    I use to have SQL Server 2005 Express Edition installed but I removed it and did a fresh install of SQL Sever 2008 ( no express editions), but my machine still thinks 2005 express edition is still there.

    It shows for a server name: my computer name\SQLEXPRESS

    Do you know if the new server name should be 'MSSQLSERVER' for the SQLSERVER 2008?
