How can we improve Configuration Manager?

When running the "Modify site database configuration" option, allow support for keeping SQL servername the same

When going through the process of changing the configuration for the site database (in order to move it to a new SQL server), if you are keeping your SQL server name the same, the wizard will not allow you to input the same SQL server name as the old. We want to get rid of our SQL 2008 R2 servers running on Windows 2008 R2 and replace with Server 2016 and SQL 2016, but also keep the same hostname for the new server. Our only option since the wizard doesn't support this scenario is to do a backup and restore.
