SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We have cloned the SharePoint 2010 Portal (WFE, App Server, Database) to create an Test environment. How do I reconfigure the WFE and App server(Central admin, service application, content databases etc.,) to point to the new database server.

Could someone provide me an guidance/best practice to accomplish this?

I believe that you are wanting to basically clone then rename the server.

All the topology can be done from central administration afterwards.

Hope this helps.
