comment MS ReportServer refuses to work with domain account
OK, what happens if you try to log in locally with that account? Log out, and log into the desktop (RDP or console) with that account to see what happens.

comment Virtual vs. Named SQL Instances
Yeah, I'm totally sold on virtual servers now. I'm heading up the Professional Association for SQL Servers chapter for Virtualization, too, because I really believe in it. Solves a ton of problems.

comment To use cable management arms or not
Yeah, but you know how it is - every bit helps. We had an outage where dual ACs, both completely independent and supposedly redundant, failed within a matter of minutes of each other. Sometimes you need every edge you can get.

comment Virtual vs. Named SQL Instances
Yeah, with VMware you don't have to pick the individual CPU. You can say, "Throttle this virtual machine to 50% of two CPU cores", and you don't have to micromanage which cores they are. VMware just picks what's available at the time you need 'em. This eliminates problems with trying to manage cores individually, which becomes really painful with active-active clusters and failovers.

You need to change the DNS records. Your DNS records are being hosted by ns1.ipvhost.ro - contact them and work with them to set up the IP address of your new Windows hosted server.
