We are setting up a new server and domain with the intent of abandoning our old Win2000 server and starting fresh. Small business, 10 users.
The new server is up and running, 2012 guest in a 2012 Hyper-V. Things are looking good....
Until we copy over the foxpro stuff. We have a install routine that sets everything up on the user's computer. Some where in the compiled code it points to \\server01\SMS\install1\setup1.cab Unfortunately when we set up the new domain we chose the server name as S1 rather than server01 as was the old server. I had copied the files to a directory called SMS but of course since it is trying to force a map to the server name server01 it does not work.
Can we just change the server name and do new drive mapping for the few users we have transitioned? I am assuming this would be the easiest way since finding help on Foxpro is pretty difficult, I would rather just let Foxpro running and leave it alone until we can find a alternate program.
I tried doing the name change on a partial not live test server, and it seems to take the change after a reboot, I am just not sure what the full impact of this is.
Any other issue I need to be aware of?
