Can somebody tell me how to rename the DB server instance name and a DB name in SQL Server 2005?
Right Now I Have
SERVER/OLDNAME -- oldnameDB
I want to change the server instance and also change the db name.
I have tried:
EXEC sp_renamedb 'oldName', 'newName'
and that has changed the dbname as it appers in the tree directory. But, when I do "select @@servername" it is the old name. Also, the MDF and LDF files are still the old name.
How do change instance and db names as a clean sweep across the server?
