I have made a copy of a standalone SP 2010 VM -> VM_2. I've renamed it, defined another IP. Now VM_1 and VM_2 run simultaneously. I've added following line to hosts file:
MY_NEW_IP VM_1 VM_2
to redirect the request to itself.
Problem: There're still references from VM_2 to SQL Server on VM_1 according to
netstat -a -o
Question: Is there a solution to completely remove these dependencies?
