Our company decided to organize the environment for development and testing for SharePoint 2016.
At first I thought to clone a half of VMs of servers of a farm of sharepoint in our normal test vlan with RODC and just to rename servers. But I was told what so won't work. Then we decided to create the complete copy of a production environment in completely isolated vlan the only thing that this IP will change.
Сloned one of our ADC there. There in isolated vlan it now the complete copy of our productive ADC and the master of all FSMO of roles.
Сloned all servers of a farm SharePoint there. Now we have a complete copy of our productive farm of sharepoint (all names of servers are identical to original) except for IP addresses. on local ADC I of course corrected appropriate dns of record. The SQL server works normally all bases are available. But sharepoint for some reason doesn't work!
Prompt in what there can be a reason (can machines were copied and joined in a missequence or something else). generally such scenario can work? I know that the simplest option for the organization of the test environment it "new installation" but can somebody so already tried and it worked?
