Moving SLK Database

Mar 12, 2008 at 4:08 PM
I've just got a new sql server for my MOSS farm as the old server is getting old and running out of disk space.

From posts I have seen, to move my site applications I have to create GUI back up - delete farm - create new farm pointing at new SQL server and restore the site.

Has anyone moved their SLK database to another server? How did it go? is it just a back up and restore or is it going to be even more complicated as the MOSS database move?

Moving the SLK database is peaches and cream compared to moving the WSS site :-)

Backup and restore should do it for use. Back in SQL Server 2000 I used the 'translation services' to do a server -> server copy without even needing to do this with backup/restore. I tried a similar thing with 2005 and found to my dismay that it was slightly harder now.
