Renamed SQL server or Single User Cyberstation and now workstation will not connect to the database

Issue

Renamed SQL server or Single User Cyberstation and now workstation will not connect to the database

Environment

  • SQL Server
  • Single User Cyberstation

Cause

When initially installing the database the computer name is registered as part of the SQL Server/MSDE install. If after the SQL server/MSDE you change the computer name the database will not start up which in turn causes Cyberstation not to start up.

Resolution

The correct method to change the computer name of the computer running the SQL Server/MSDE database is to:

  1. Backup the database
  2. Uninstall SQL Server/MSDE
  3. Change the computer name
  4. Re-install SQL Server/MSDE
  5. Re-initialize a blank Continuum database
  6. Restore the backup database
