Client computers do not have a way to know the new server. First Look Pro uses DNS (name resolution) to find the SQL Server instance to connect.
The new computer can be renamed to the old server name (be sure to re-start SQL Server service).
FOR DIRECT CONNECT COMPUTERS: Client computers have a "Preferences.xml" file located in default location "C:\Program Data\Cad Zone\First Look Pro 5" directory. There is an entry in xml file named "SQL Server value="OLD_SERVER_NAME". Change this entry to the NEW_SERVER_NAME.
FOR SYNCHRONIZE COMPUTERS:
Go to the Database Tools > Database Management menu.
Click the Setup tab.
Click the Select Master radio button.
Enter the NEW_SERVER_NAME into the Select or Enter Computer box.
Check the Yes, I want to use the selected computer as my synchronize master box, then click Commit.
