If you get “The instance name must be the same as computer name.” error when Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server installation starts, probably you have renamed your SQL Server Computer name after the SQL installation.

To fix it:

  1. Find the servername information saved in SQL Server itself during the installation
    1. select @@servername

    2. SP_HELPSERVER

  2. Find actual/new computer name, Start > Run > CMD > Hostname
  3. Drop old computer name saved in the SQL Server
    1. sp_dropserver “Old Computer Name”
      CRMSQLInstNameError-04
  4. Add new computer name to SQL Server
    1. sp_addserver “New Computer Name”, local
