A colleague has renamed a SQL server, however all of the maintenance plans still have references to 'OLD_NAME' as 'Local Server Connection'.

The text boxes containing the server names for Local Server Connections are greyed-out and cannot be changed

Is there a way to change these values, short of exporting all of the SSIS packages, changing in Visual Studio and re-adding them again?

How did the colleague rename the server? Did they follow this procedure:


If not, they need to, The procedure should be the same regardless of SQL version.

Do you expect doing this will correct the naming issue, even if it wasn't necessarily followed the first time? (I don't know whether the guide was followed or not) –  Richard Jul 14 '11 at 7:03
Changed the version to SQL Server 2005 (just below title of page) and at the bottom of that page there is some prepared SQL for sorting out the local server connection server names. Excellent - thank-you –  Richard Jul 14 '11 at 8:53
