I've seen questions about attemting to repair a .mxd file with broken links. What I would like to do is get ahead of this issue and "fix" it before it becomes a problem.
I have my data in an ArcSDE geodatabase. The SDE is being navigated to a new machine in the near future so the database connection properties will change. Is there anything I can do ahead of time to avoid broken links and slow loading maps?
Here is a similar but different question: How do you deal with (repair/avoid) broken MXD\LYR paths?
