This registry entry is has a REG_SZ type. The value is the Virtual SQL Server name.
This registry entry has a REG_MULTI_SZ type. The value is the Virtual SQL Server IP address.

- After the registry entries are copied to the correct location on all nodes, restart the nodes.
- Open Registry Editor, and then locate the following registry subkey:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSSQLServer\Client
