No, they are not necessarily identical - just when you do not specify a server name when starting the database server (i.e. you have not used the dbsrvX -n server name option) the server is named after the first database started...

For a running database, the following will tell you both names:

select property('Name'), db_property('Name');
permanent link

You can use the DBLOCATE utility to find running servers (and running databases) in your network neighborhood.

I don't want to find in neighbour network. I want to find servers in my machine.I able to find server using dbisql in my vm but in my client's vm there isn't sql central and dbisql utility gives error that isql.jar not found. Do you have any idea about this error ?
