Restoring server for dev purposes
Posted on 2013-01-09
I'm suppose to restore a server from a backup, change its name, give it a different domain and plug it in back to live network however I think there will be an issue with it. If I change the restored computer name, eventually it'll contact the domain and change its name there hence affecting the production server, right?
I obviously don't want to test it because it might screw everything up so I'd rather ask if this is the case or how can I do it, to have dev server cloned from production on the same network?
