Renaming SQL 2000 server.

Hi, We have a SQL server 2000 SP2 on **JUMBONew** server.This is a **virtual** box (VWware) with Windows Server 2003 SP2 4 GB RAM and 4 CPUs.The application team now wants to rename the box to Jumbo and so we would also have to rename the SQL server.I have gone through some articles that suggests that SQL server 2000 cannot be renamed on a virtual server. Uninstall and re installation is the only solution for this problem. Could you please provide a suitable solution for our scenario? Thanks

With SQL 2000 this is possible and not that complicated, use the steps from the link below. What article said this wasn't possible on a virtual server? [ http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143799.aspx][1] [1]: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143799.aspx
