Hi,

I have been looking for the last few hours for how to move a non-clustered
environment to a clustered environment without having to change the
connection strings of any of our applications.  I'm not finding it anywhere.

It's been a while since I did this, and I thought we could have a virtual
name for both instances that are the same as the old computer names (I.E.
Instance 1 is called "Bitter" and instance 2 is called "silver" from the
apps, even if the actual names are ClustName\Instance1 &
Clustname\Instance2).

Is this possible, and can someone point me to where I can find how to do
this, if it is?

Thanks,
