Error : instance name must be same as computer name while installing CRM 4.0

Hi i was recieving this error while installting crm 4.0.

This is how i resolved it

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143799.aspx

Running the following command was giving the name as ‘DASDS’

SELECT @@SERVERNAME AS ‘Server Name’

where as the name of the sql server was ‘NRANA’

So ran the following command
sp_dropserver ‘DASDS’
GO
sp_addserver ‘NRANA’, local
GO

followed by

SQL Server service restart.

After this SELECT @@SERVERNAME AS ‘Server Name’ gave me the new name.

I mentioned the same name during the installation of CRM 4.0 and the error was resolved.

Bye…
