We are going to switch current existing 2008 server that hosts sql server to a new virtual server. And we will get rid of current one.
Then we will change the computer name for the new one as the old server computer name.
I read some articles about how to rename sql server after renaming computer, by using sp_dropserver,
But my question is a step before this, since I never rename a computer before , esp, there is another computer existing in the domain.
What is the step to do it?
And also in case there is some failure for the new server, and we want to turn back on the old server, is it easy, and how the name will be related with this?
