SharePoint VM migration

Hi,

My company recently migrated VMs for SharePoint Farm from frm one VM environment to another.  These VM environments are in two different domains, but they do have the same server names.

Our server systems team told me that these two different VM environments wouldn't talk to each other; however, they do it seems.

We thought, if we copy the old VM to new VM, we don't really have to make any changes and we can just start using the sharePoint, but I learned it hard way that it is not the case.

I fixed most of problems, but I have one remaining problem. My problem is that the SharePoint contents is coming from the new VM environment; however, when I run SSRS reports, it hits the old VM's reporting services.  I updated the Reporting Services Integration in the Central Administration in the new VM, but old VMs reporting services are still being called.  I know this because I can find execution logs in the old VM ReportServer and there's no execution logs in the new VM.

The web application has been unextened and reextended to resolve the new URL.  And all the shared data sources have been updated with the new VMs information.  But, sharePoint is still calling the reporting services in the old VM.

How/where can I make an update for SharePoint to use the new VM's reporting services?

Thanks a lot!

I want to add more information...

If I click a report under Reports, the report calls the correct reporting services under the new VM, but if I click the same report under "Sites/Workspaces", it calls the old reporting services...

SharePoint does not respond well to a change in domain.  In fact, I know of no official way to do it.  It stores security identifiers for the computer, user and service accounts and in a new domain those will break.  Keeping the same NETBIOS names will make it seem OK, however I think you will have problems in the long term.

I had to remove the ReportServer and reinstall the reporting services.  And re-integrate reporting services with SharePoint in the Central Administrator.  Redeploy reports and make property changes on Performance dashboards...

I did a lot of research but I couldn't find what I should do when copying SharePoint Farm VMs as is.  How much can be re-used as is and what are the things need to be re-configured.  I finally figured out by looking into everything and trying to make changes one by one.
