How to create Central Administration database in Sharepoint 2010 without GUID (using PSCONFIG)

If the Central Administration content database has a GUID at the end, it shows that Configuration Wizard was run to build the farm. We can fix it following the below steps(using PSCONFIG)

1) First, we have to NOT run the Configuration Wizard after SharePoint2010 installation. When you get to this screen, uncheck the box to run the Configuration Wizard and click “Close.”

2) Go to command prompt and change the directory to the following  C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\BIN\ .

3) Run the following command. This creates databases in SQL for configuration and administration.

psconfig -cmd configdb -create -server "sql-server-name" -database “configuration-database-name”        -user "username" -password "******" -passphrase "some-passphrase" -admincontentdatabase “central-administration-database-name”
