    Red face Unanswered: Changing machine name & IP number on SQL Server 7.

    Hi all!

    We run a NT4 server machine running SQL 7 which contains some vital data on older databases. This machine was PDC for a long time, untill we got a new win2k server, which got the same machine name and IP number as the old NT4 machine which isn't yet connected to the AD. This new server does SQL 2000.

    Since it's still important for us to have access to the SQL 7 data which cannot be used on SQL2000 server, I want to put the NT4 machine in the Win2k domain, but when I change the server's name and IP adress into something free (machine name and IP number are both taken over by new server) the SQL 7 server won't start anymore.

    Is there anyone out there that knows how to solve this problem?

    Thanks!!!! A LOT!

    I think you can run SQL 7 on the same machine as SQL 2000 and they won't bump into eachother.

    You can have SQL 2000 and one of the previous versions on the same machine. See if you want to do this. If not, see if the following article resolves your issues.
