    http://downloads2.esri.com/support/whitepapers/ao_/ArcGIS_9.3_Enterprise_Deployment.pdf
    see
    2 - Edit dbtune table (configuration keywords) to use LONGRAW, not ST_GEOMETRY
    3 - V9.1 Feature Classes/Datasets are Low Precision, data loading at v9.3.1 are High Precision
    http://support.esri.com/index.cfm?fa=knowledgebase.whitepapers.viewPaper&PID=66&MetaID=1301

    DOA/DOT Co-Location…
    The DET/DOT Server Co-location Project was for DET to support the co-location of all DOT production and production support applications, servers, and devices into the DET Femrite Data Center (FDC) by providing DOT a secure facility, network connectivity, network racks, enclosures (cabinets) and facility resources.
    New GIS Infrastructure Build from Ground Up:
    • Green Field Builds – network, connectivity and servers
    • 13. Production = physical blades; SYST and UAT = virtual machines
    • 14. Once new hardware production, severs aliased with the old server
    names to avoid breaking code, connection files, layer files etc…
    Since I did not build the v9.1 system, I had to document the current system
    so I could rebuild it at the FDC as v9.3.1
