If you know what the machine name is, when you could make use of the following method to get some information about all the SQL instances running, you could then look-up the name within the returned collection: SqlDataSourceEnumerator.GetDataSources Method [^].

You should get a collection of rows (DataTable) that has the following columns:

- ServerName
- InstanceName
- IsClustered
- Version
