I want to create an alias in SQL Server Configuration Manager. I can navigate to "Aliases" in the tree on the left, and I can right-click to open the context menu when "New alias..." is an option. When I click "New alias...", I get the following window:
All of the fields are grayed-out and uneditable. Is this a bug in SQL Server Configuration Manager, or am I doing something wrong?
This is SQL Server 2016 Standard. I was able to create an alias previously so I do not know why this is not working. I have tried multiple workarounds, such as opening Configuration Manager as administrator, and running the 64-bit version of the SQLServerManager13.msc.
