Server Migration RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to migrate my NS application from one server to another.  The servername/sql instance names are different on the new server.
    Server A is the current production server.  Server B is where I want to migrate it to.

    I tried doing the following steps:
    1.  Created a new NS instance/application on the new server using the ICF/ADF (with the new servername B).
    2.  Detach the 2 NS databases that were created. 
    3.  Move a backup from server A to server B and reattach the 2 databases.
    4.  Update the instance using server B as the server/sql instance name in the ICF/ADF. 

    The update fails.  No meaningful error is given, just that the update failed.  I am assuming when it compares these to what is stored within the NS instance/application databases, it sees the different names and fails.  Can this be done this way?  I need to keep all of the event/notification/retry data and don't want to have to manually move it all by scripting out inserts.
