Here is the long and short:
Goal: To clone a SharepointProd VM retaining all the webapps and sites in order to debug a custom solution.
We have two virtual machines: spTest and spProd. spTest is of a lower build version than spProd.
Since deploying and running a solution from Test to Prod is throwing errors, we decided to clone prod so we can use visual studio to debug the solution.
Cloning the server only takes care of the sharepoint server.
My question is; Would the cloned server use the same SQL2008 instance as the original?
If not, what are the steps I should be looking at?
