SYMPTOMS

The Client Configuration Utility may display an incorrect pipe name if a new named pipe alias is created specifying a unique pipe.

For example, create a new alias and use named pipe as the Network Library. In the pipe name parameter, enter a custom value such as:
\\test\sql\123test
After you save the alias, click Edit to look at the properties of the alias.

The pipe name always displays \\servername\sql\pipe\query as the parameter. However, the value is saved correctly in the registry.
