Cloning a MS BPC 10 PRD to a DEV environment


Hi experts,

We want to build a DEV environment by cloning an existing MS BPC 10 PRD environment.

Do you know of a client or an implementation that has successfully done this?

Normally, we would do a base install of all the components of the system, i.e. SQL, Visual Studio and BPC. However, the client wants to do a physical backup (image) of the existing BPC server and restore to a new BPC server instance. From what I understand, BPC connects to the SQL tables and OLAP using the hostname, and if the connection is renamed, it breaks the connection and BPC. Is there a way around this?

Any information will be highly appreciated.
