Moving the SCCM database

Published On: 2013-10-09By:

Recently I had to move the SCCM database for a client of mine. I used this walkthrough to go through the process.  For the most part everything worked pretty well.  There was one thing which was missing from this.  The process requires that the SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 Feature Pack (or the feature pack for which ever version of SQL Server you had installed before) in the same location that the MSI packages were located in when SCCM was first installed.  This means downloading and saving the MSIs in the correct location as needed.

Hopefully if you have to move your SCCM database you won’t spin your wheels like I did.
