Move SharePoint to another SQL Server

 

  1. Stop any processes that might be accessing your SharePoint databases
  2. Back up all your SharePoint databases on SQL A.
  3. Restore them on SQL B.
  4. Set up a SQL alias on SharePoint that points SQL A to SQL B

Stop any processes that might be accessing your SharePoint databases

Open services.msc and stop:

· SharePoint 2010 Administration

· SharePoint 2010 Timer

· SharePoint Server Search 14

· SharePoint Tracing

· World Wide Web Publishing Service

Check your actual database server in Central Admin and be sure that you are using a SQL alias.

(a SQL alias can be made by using the CLICONFG-command)

Check which databases are being used by SharePoint within Central Admin

Backup all these databases on SQL server A (SQLCluster) with SQL Management Studio

Put all databases on Offline after making the SQL Backup

Copy all BAK-files (SQL Backup files) to the new SQL server

Set up a SQL alias on SharePoint that points SQL A to SQL B (Start-Run-cliconfg)

Enter the same SQL Server alias but change the connection parameters to the new servername\instancename
