Migrating SharePoint from one machine to another machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, i had a SharePoint server, now i want to move this from one machine to another machine.

    This is what i did for the migration.

    I have just installed sharepoint server in my new machine and i have removed the Sharepoint_config and wss_content databased from the new server. and i have restored both the databases from the old server. Then i tried to run the Central Admin and i got Unable to connect to content database error.

    Is replacing the DB is wrong. is there any other way to migrate SP server from one machine to another. I have tried my taking Farm backup and restore i had many problem with that. so i feel replacing DB would be better for me. any suggestions please?

    Thanks, Saravanan PRS
