What is the safe way to remove an old IP address from SQL Server configuration?
The scenario is, I have a server with 2 NIC's that should have been configured for teaming but weren't at the time SQL was installed. Each had a different IP so SQL picked up on that and added each IP to its configuration.
The NICs are now teamed and the box is down to a single IP. I want to remove from SQL configuration the IP that is no longer assigned to the server. I don't want to just deactivate it, but rather I want to completely remove it.
Is there a safe way to do this? Or does one just delete the keys under
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.[Instance Name]\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\Tcp\ related to the IP in question and restart?
