I created an alias named "ProductServer" to point to a SQL Server 2008 R2 named instance on my local machine. I'm trying to upgrade that to point to SQL Server 2014 named instance. I used SQL Server Configuration Manager to change the entry to point to the correct instance, and it shows correctly. The Client Network Utility confirms the change is configured correctly.
When I connect to ProductServer from SSMS, after restarting the machine, it still points to the wrong instance (still 2008R2). Any ideas why it won't map to the correct one?
