got a very strange one here,
the company I work for has an old program built Pre 2000 which connects to a SQL 7 database, the program has been running for a number of years with no issues however the time have come to try and move it to a better SQL version. the connection string for this program is embedded in a DLL which we no longer have the source code for. i know there are programs out there that can decomplie the dll. however i want to see if there is another way.
the current program has the connection string as servername\instance.
my question is, Using Always on High Availability, can you set the listener name to be servername\instance or will it just act as a servername?
