    A little question ( i am beginning with the unattented mode )

    Is MSSQLSERVER the real name of the instance or the name of the SQL Server Service ?

    real name = dans SSMS right-click on the name of the SQL Server instance ==> Facets ==> Server install parameters ==> InstanceName

    name of the SQL Server Service ( here a default install as a no-named instance )

  2. It is the name of Instance, the instance name may span more than one instance feature like  Engine or Analysis services.
