Restoring content db with new site collection ID RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a content db of a production system and I want to back it up and restore it to a new content db that will function as a dev environment. 

    I did a normal SQL backup and then restored it to a new DB.  The issue is that if I try to attach the new content db to my new web application, it does not work since the Site Collection ID is the same as the prod Site Collection.  How can I get the Site Collection ID to change to so that I can attach this db?
