The Shared Services DB server name is wrong, but I cannot change it

Hi, I’m looking to install ControlPoint on a small farm, using a Virtual version of our servers.

I just discovered a whole bunch of errors in the Application event log, which led me to look at the Shared Services settings in Central Admin. There I can see the name of the ‘SSP Database  server’. The problem is, this server does not exist on the
test (or live) environment).

Not aware of all the implications of this, but I presume this will cause us some difficulties!

Why can’t I change the name of the server? We do appear to have SharedService1 DB on a quite different server, but I don’t seem able to direct MOSS to use that one?

What more info could I provide that would be useful?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions?
