Test Server - Server Rename question

Mahari Hill (486192210) | asked Oct 14 '16, 7:53 a.m.

I have a test server and prod server. I took a copy of the prod DBs and put them on a test DB server. I copied the prod installation directory of CLM502 and put it on the test server. I changed the hosts on the test server to think it's prod. I finally changed the on the test server to point to the test DBs.

Launch and test connecting to the copied DB
Then follow the steps to do a server rename
Test the upgrade?

I ask because I followed these instructions:

It looks like I would be doing similar steps...Do I need to start over?
