MicroSoft, SQL Server, 2005, Large Domain, SharePoint Servers (NLB), one SQL Server, forced server(s) name change
Posted on 2008-06-19
We have set up a development SharePointServer 2007, connected to a stand alone SQL server, which we are running in a AD Domain. Everything has been setup and is working properly. We were just advised we need to change the name of all the servers, URL's etc. , to accomodate an organizational name change. I am only responsible for the SQL side, another team has the MOSS 2007 side. I do not have to change the names of the individual databases - those can remain the same.
The reseach I have done so far, indicates I should be able to rename the server with a stand-alone instance of SQL Server 2005. I have found information on renaming the report server. Backups are performed using LiteSpeed for SQL, and I should be able to modifiy those jobs. Am I missing anything? What else needs to be considered? Will I need to detach the databases from the old server, and reattach on the new? Is there a better way?
I would appreciate what ever help I can get. I am completely at a loss with this one.
