We are moving away from our existing Windows 2003 cluster to virtual
servers.

Is it possible to move the existing SQL 2000 database from the
clustered environment to a new default instance on a stand alone
server?

The new server would have the same name as the clustered virtual
server.

Does SQL "know" if it is running on a clustered or non-clustered
server?

Thanks,
Ken
