    Unanswered: Problem written with few words... come and read

    I've created an alias of my computer name
    with the Network client utility

    Computer name : SCG59730
    Instance name : Mercure
    Alias : MyProject

    When I try to register this new server (MyProject\Mercure)
    SQL Server doesn't find the server

    I think you should simply register with the alias alone:
    MyProject
    not MyProject\Mercure
    .. although I have not used it very much.

    Re: Problem written with few words... come and read

    In fact I wanted to create an Alias
    to avoid using the Machine Name in the connection string


    but I FINALLY found the of creating my local server in
    the Enterprise Manager

    the name of the server must be

    (LOCAL)\INSTANCENAME



    thanks anyway
