Good Day,

My company has a 2-node active-active cluster with 6 virtual server instances (each with its own resources e.g. hard drive, quorum etc).

We currently have a virtual service instance with instance name,SQLServer Agent,Full Text and Analysis Services named to a environment that was recently migrated off the cluster.

We want to put a new environment in its place with the deletion of the old and addition of some new databases.  We would like the network name to remain the same but the above(instance,agent..etc) renamed to the new application that would  reside in that virtual server instance.

Please inform me how I can easily go about this.

That the method in the above question should work for you as you can drop and add on the old and new virtual named instance.
