Pondering Automation: Movin' that DB

Cisco Employee

Howdy out there in automation land!! Since I came across my own issues with database size I decided to create a how to VOD on moving a DB from one server to another and the whole re-attach process. This is done for SQL and should be straight forward enough for everyone to follow!

The steps are as follows...

  1. Attach SQL server to remote storage
  2. Backup Process and Reporting DB to remote storage
  3. Move DBs to new SQL server
  4. Restore both DBs to new SQL server
  5. Use DB Utility to attach new DB server to CPO
  6. Use CPO console to remove/re-attach Reporting DB
  7. Use attached script to help you restore Reporting DB jobs for grooming

And that's all there is to it! Hopefully the below VOD will help you out. The audio is a bit loud so just a fair warning!

Onto the VIDEO!
