what is so bad about running chfarm that you insist on torturing yourself like 
this?

Subject: [THIN] Changing Farms


Hi Everyone

I would like to run something past you.

I recently received some advise on an alternate method of changing farms,
which I didn't think was quite correct.

Steps
1. Update the mf20.dsn file to point to the new DS
2. Stop the IMA 
3. Recreate the LHC
4. Start the IMA

I did attempt this and the server actually reconnected to the original farm.
I verified the DSN file it was using was the updated one. I performed an IMA
trace while it was running and it kept trying to look for the old Farm name.
Both the old DS and the new one were located on the same SQL 2000 server.

If I add the following steps it worked. 
1. Change the Farm name to the new one in the registry.(4 locations)
2. Run the dsmaint config command to connect to the new DS

Can anyone advise if they have ever done this and had it work?

Thanks
