Can’t Modify/Delete Maintenance Plans in SQL 2005 after Rename

After renaming SQL Server 2005 server the maintenance plans couldn’t be deleted. When trying to delete or modify a plan user gets an error. Using the SSMS there is no way to delete the plan.

1. Manually delete Maintenance Plan from MSDB using script below.
2. Delete the SQL Server Jobs with the Management Studio.
