Deploying SQL Server database backup into the new server environment with same name but different IP address
Posted on 2014-04-04
I'm in the process of migrating couple bunch of SQL Server 2005 Databases from the old hardware server into a virtual machine that I will be building with the exact same name but different IP address. (in other words it is using P2V (Physical to Virtual conversion).
Existing application connect by using Database2005 (IP 192.168.15.22), the new server will be the exact same name DATABASE2005 but with different IP 10.1.1.54.
How to make sure that the back end application can still talk to this newly created database without any issue ?
is there any caveats that I need to know or check before hand ?
Thanks in advance.
