We currently have a 2-node File Server Cluster running Server 2003 using direct attached storage. Our existing cluster name is File. We plan on upgrading our existing cluster to 2008 R2 by using the procedure outlined here.
My concern is that you cannot have two clusters with the same name. Therefore, our new cluster name would be created as File2. After destroying File, can we change File2 back to File? This would allow us to keep all our resources/group policies the same for all the file shares. I cannot find any good microsoft articles that say you can change your Cluster name. My other thought was to create a static DNS entry to point File to File2's IP.
