My company was in the mid to migration the old application to Oracle. Due to japan nuclear disaster, we need to set up the BCP for Japan at my country.
SQL 7 is a very old application, several thing i might not forsee. Hope can get some guideline here.
Basically, we need to create a window 2000 virtual server to install all the old application and SQL 7.
My question is currently Japan's system are still live, we need to bring up the virtual server to be live once they activate the BCP. Our plan is switch the new virtual server Domain name and window name with Japan's live system to make sure this was transparent to end user at Japan and everything are still on going.
Is there any concern or thing i shall take note? When we rename the window server 2000, does SQL 7 still working? Thanks.
