I created an VHD image of our backup DC which is running on windows 2003 server std.
If I wanted to make the virtualized backup DC available with the production backup DC on the network, what are the necessary steps I needed to avoid any possible network problem?
Do I need to temporary unplug the network connection on production backup DC before I rename the server name of the virtualized server when I enable the external network?
Do I need to demote the virtualized backup DC or can it remain as another backup DC on the network with a different server name before making it available on the network?
Any step by step process would be appreciated just to make sure I do not cause any network failure.
