I have a server, used for applications, with the path: \\cifs_server\folder
I have to move it to a new server : \\cifs_server_new\folder
(both folders has been synced).
What's the best method for doing that, with the smallest interrupt of service?
- Change all the application's paths to the share (which can be long, IIS with lot of virtual directories)
- In host file, create an entry "IP_OF_NEW_SERVER cifs_server" (but will AD authentication still work?
- Remove *cifs_server* from domain, rename *cifs_server_new* to *cifs_server* and join it to domain?
