Need to create a new UAT. Decided to use the Current Live environment. Created Copy of DC, SP & SQL Servers, Put them in their own little Virtual Bubble. Everything works.
Work already done
I've gone through the process of renaming the SharePoint Server (SP first with Powershell and then the Box itself) Also renamed some of the Alternate Access Mappings (AAM) Followed this guide: http://www.bluesphereinc.com/blog/renaming-a-sharepoint-20102013-server/
Central Administration back up and running and working
It looks like the Content Databases are still connected and on (from what I can tell from the Central Administration console) However my main SharePoint website doesn't seem to be working.
Can someone suggest some Fault finding procedures for me to find out where the fault is? Not sure if this is IIS or SP related right now.
The wanted result
Once I've got the Websites confirmed working I will work on renaming the SQL Databases and disconnecting/reconnecting them (though not sure how to actually do this just yet) as I only have one SQL Box in my environment.
This should leave me nicely with;
- Live SP Server
- UAT SP Server
- SQL Server Hosting both sets of Databases
