Updating @@SERVERNAME

Eitan Blumin has a script to change what you get when you reference @@SERVERNAME:

If, for whatever reason, the Windows Computer Name is changed after SQL Server is already installed, then @@SERVERNAME and the information in sysservers would not automatically reflect the change.
This means that @@SERVERNAME contains the incorrect value for the machine name.

Sometimes, and especially in production environments, the value in that global variable is important and is used as part of business processes.
And if @@SERVERNAME doesn’t reflect the actual server name, it could cause problems.

Read on for that script.
