We are going to migrate from 1 sql server (sql1) to a cluster (sql1a & sql2a). I have limited cluster knowledge, but I anticipate I need to run through the ZCM db install (DVD_drive:\setup.exe -c) on both sql servers correct? Initially we will have the VIP of the cluster a temp name, so this should be able to be done during normal business hours. Then were thinking of taking the live server down (over weekend), copy db and copy to the SAN of the cluster then change the VIP of the cluster to the same dns name and ip address of our current server (sql1).

If we do this method of "keeping the same name/ip" do we need to adjust the zdm.xml files on the primary servers?

Any input would be great...anyone done this before with some good recommendations?
