  • I am having the same issue.  I have a server farm w/ a stand alone sql server.  I'm successfully running sharepoint.  The server name was changed when sql was installed from "server002" to "RTDB1".

    I did see SERVER002 in SQL studio.  I ran the query to change to RTDB1.  restarted the server.  Studio now shows RTDB1, but I still get the error when installing Dynamics. 

    I have noticed that SERVER002 shows up in the main IIS page under connections.  I have not seen any solution for fixing that, yet.
