Migrating SQL 2008 x64 Cluster on W2k3 --> Windows 2008 R2 Cluster

Discussion in 'microsoft.public.sqlserver.server' started by Peter Gibbons, Oct 14, 2009.

  1. Hello,

    I want to migrate a two node Windows Server 2003 x64 R2 Cluster with
    multiple clustered SQL Server 2008 instances and a few TB of databases
    to Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 with minimum downtime and keep the
    instance names.
    If it helps I can for example assign the LUNs of the old system to the
    new one and make snapshots in the SAN.

    What recommendations and best practices documents are where?

    Kind regards,
