SELECT @instancename =
WHEN charindex('\', @@servername) = 0 THEN ''
ELSE SUBSTRING(@@servername,
CHARINDEX('\', @@servername), (len(@@servername)+ 1) –
CHARINDEX('\', @@servername))
SET @machinename = convert(nvarchar(100), serverproperty('machinename')) + @instancename;
EXEC sp_dropserver @@servername;
EXEC sp_addserver @machinename, 'local'
