CRM 2011 - Installation - The instance name must be the same as computer name.


  • Hiya,

    Im trying to install CRM 2011 again. Been doing a few installations with the usual hassle etc, but this one simply got me stuck.

    When running the installation, the System Checks fail on Microsoft SQL Server with:
    The instance name must be the same as computer name.
    The SQL Server is a seperate server from the CRM 2011 installation.

    I searched and found the reference to the sp_addserver, however that just doesnt do it for me.
    It states name allready exists.

    If I run:
    select @@servername
    it returns NULL

    If I run:
    SELECT ServerProperty('servername')
    it returns the correct value of my SQL Server.

    Named Pipes has been enabled on the server as well as the server has been rebooted.

    Firewall rules created for port 1433.
    I can nslookup the server without problems.
    I can open Managment Studio and connect to the Database engine with the account used for the installation.

    Anyone got suggestions on how to solve this?
