    Hi all,
    I have a sql 2005 x64 a/p cluster setup who needs to be moved into a new domain.
    (hostname, ip addr. and domainname changes)
    What's the best way to do this?

    Thanks for a hint

    http://www.sql-server-performance.com/bm_cluster_sql_server_2005.asp - by all means to refer.
    Clustering involves a combination of one or more disks cluster group that is dependant on other resources of the server.
    - A network name for the failover cluster instance.
    see if there is a change on the network name in this case

    One or more IP addresses assigned to the failover cluster instance.
    - IP Address is important and due to the domain change if this happens, you must refer to KBAhttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/244980 &http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190460.aspx

    One instance of SQL Server 2005 that includes SQL Server, SQL Server Agent
    - Ensure all the services are back online when moved, don't forget to have complete backups for system and user databases.

    Essentially, you have to uninstall SQL Server Clustering, Windows Clustering, change the domain information on your member server, then readd Winows Clustering and then SQL Server Clustering.
