This article references detaching and attaching the database whereas I have restored the database using "restore as". Also, thinking that I could possibly skip the detach / attach process and substitute with backup / restore I notice that in Synchronization panel that the "Manage Main Database Location" is greyed out anyway. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Note that performing a "Restore As" will remove all of that database's Sync configuration information. Your best and recommended approach is to detach from the original location, copy all of the database files (including its folder structure) to the new machine, then open that .ADF file locally on the new machine using ACT!. This will attach the database (so it can be used now) and perform a Verify to true things up.
I believe the KB Article AJones referenced will then guide you thru changing the machine name on the other databases that sync with it.

Look closer at the KB article that Bill and AJones referenced, specifically the bottom link:
All you have to do is go in the remote(s) and change the server name that they are looking for...
