We currently are looking to build out a single farm MOSS 2007 instance. We took an image of the production instance, along with SQL server, and built the dev instance off of this.
The issue is this defeats the purpose of a dedicated dev instance because everything points to the prod instance. Question is, hhat is the best approach to reconfigure the instance as new dev environment? Can I delete the config_DB and re-run the Product and Techonology wizard? I am not worried about the content as I will just take a backup of the prod content database and import to the dev instance.
Failed to mention if it is more advisable to just reinstall MOSS 2007 and create all the new SharePoint DB's from scratch.
