comment Static IP Address to Redirect to Azure VIP Address
Correct A records only accept an IP Address. CNAME records point to other DNS records such as A records. The client CNAME of something.client.com points to your A record customer.company.com. Customer.company.com points to an IP address. When the DNS lookup for something.client.com happens it finds customer.company.com and returns the IP address for customer.company.com.

comment Failover Cluster Migration Wizard (SQL Install Portion)
The cluster migration wizard is for things like file server resources, not for complex things like SQL Server clusters. Are you just trying to move to new hardware or are you doing an OS upgrade as a part of the process? I assume the end result is that the hostnames and instance names for the SQL Server services remain the same?

Are these domains within the same forest or are they separate forests that are manually trusted together?

comment Upgraded SQL server, performance plummets
Odds are this can all be solved within SQL Server. 3rd party LOB support isn't going to be needed, and odds are that WireShark is way overboard for solving this.

comment How to change the product key of SQL server 2008 R2
What's the reason that you are changing the key? As long as the edition is correct and you actually own the license that's all that matters.

comment Windows Server 2012 File name too long?
Backwards compatibility is a pain. If Server 2012 allowed it and a Windows XP machine connected to it the client wouldn't be able to use the folder name. And given that most Fortune 500 companies are still using Windows XP that sort of thing has to be taken into account.

comment Upgrade Server 2008 R2 to Server 2012, failover cluster problems?
That could be permissions. Are you a local admin on the server?
