We have a 2 node SQL Failover Cluster (2008).
We wish to replace these 2 Servers (Virtual Machines) with 2 new ones. I was hoping I could 'cheat' and instead of powering off both current Virtual Machines and then having to do the SQL install from scratch on the 2 new Servers. I could do the following
A: Add the 2 new Virtual Machines as additional Failover Clusters into the current SQL Environment (so we now have a 4 node SQL Cluster)
B: Power off the 2 OLD Virtual Machines (so the 2 new Virtual Machines make up the new Cluster)
Would this work or would it be looking for certain files, etc that were installed on the Primary Node?
