Each instance of Notification Services on a computer must have a unique name, which is not case-sensitive. For example, MyInstance and myinstance are not considered unique names. The commands used to create and register instances are not case-sensitive.

Because this name is used for database objects, follow the Microsoft SQL Server rules for regular identifiers. Do not use SQL Server reserved keywords or special characters, such as /, \, [, ], ", and '. For more information about SQL Server identifiers, see Identificatori.

This example shows how to specify an instance name of StockInstance.
