sp_configure ‘allow updates’, 1 GO RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE GO update sysservers set datasource = 'server\instance' where srvname = 'repl_distributor'; GO sp_configure ‘allow updates’, 0 GO RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE GO Know this is an old question but we've just been working with this, Last month we had to move our distribution server to a brand new machine, (Setup is two machines in AG stand alone distributor and a reporting server) The only real way we found to move distributor server is to completely tear down and rebuild replication, this can be done with right clicking replication and generate scripts bare in mind you'll need to do this on the publishers and the new distributor.We've just had an issue where our AG group didn't take the distributor change, and since its a read only node we're doing some experiments with different ways to do that, our tests of updating the [master].[sys].[sysobjvalues] table (which is where the 'datasource' value is actually stored (the sysservers is just a view) have resulted promising results if you want the server to never work ever again.As with other system tables, this one has the same disclaimer that this system table will be removed from a future version of SQL Server. There, that makes things easier to understand, right?Go ahead and try it for yourself: Why should you care? I would say you have a handful of reasons to care about this. If you should ever need to rebuild a server you will want to know exactly what linked servers had previously been defined.
You can follow the below steps to update the SQL Server system metadata which stores the physical server name in sys.servers.
Drive C was used by all user databases from the old server.
In order to attach the databases rather that perform a restore on each one of them from backups (reasons: time consuming, backups are not up to date, backups don’t exist), I have to change the physical path for all user databases inside master database to point to an existing location with enough space, so that at the next SQL startup the databases will all come online as well.
Let us learn in this table how to change server name?
Finally, I formed this query which can gather same details from various sources: SELECT HOST_NAME() AS 'host_name()', @@servername AS 'Server Name\Instance Name', SERVERPROPERTY('servername') AS 'Server Name', SERVERPROPERTY('machinename') AS 'Windows_Name', SERVERPROPERTY('Computer Name Physical Net BIOS') AS 'Net BIOS_Name', SERVERPROPERTY('instance Name') AS 'Instance Name', SERVERPROPERTY('Is Clustered') AS 'Is Clustered' Most of these server properties have been there for a while and sometimes I think it requires a refresher like this to remember them again.
