    I don't thing this will work for your sys DBs. especially master.

    I have done this for stand alone instance (including system DBs 🙂 ).

    And why do you think so Steve? logically it should work if names are not changing (i did mention that in step 2)

    I have not tried personally and its only theory.

    How to do the reverse?

    — Switching from a cluster test environment to stand alone SQL 2008 servers?

    What are the steps needed?

  4. Balmukund says:


    Same steps. Make sure the path of data drive is not getting changed.
