We have a SharePoint 2010 farm with one front-end server. This server is a VMWare virtual machine. Let's call it SERVER1.
We want to add a new front-end server to this SP farm to enable load balancing. We have already cloned SERVER1 (named it SERVER2).
The problem is that this clone already "thinks" is it part of the farm since the only thing that has really changed is the host/computer name. When we run the farm configuration wizard, it does not give us a chance to "add server to existing farm".
What can we do to SERVER2 so that it thinks it is not part of the farm and could be added to the farm?
