Hi all -

I'm trying to find out if I can take an existing installation of Sharepoint Services 3.0 and move its databases to a different SQL instance. The new instance would be SQL 2008 SP1 x64 bit edition; the current backend is SQL 2005 SP2 32 bit.

Thoughts? Potential problems.

Thanks in advance for your help!

You'll not find very much SharePoint knowledge here. Most of us avoid it like the plague.

You didn't mention which version of SharePoint you're running and I suspect the 2005 SQL Server version means some vintage around SharePoint 2007.

I found a TechNet article for SharePoint 2013. If click on Other Versions there appears to be documentation for 2010 and 2007 as well.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for you reply Scott. 'Plague' is a polite word for Sharepoint! I was only originally tidying up some loose ends on an SBS 2008 installation, including the SBS console and Windos Update Services. Although we don't use Sharepoint I like to have things tidy and working! But after two days of trying to reinstall and reading many...many...many blogs etc, still no joy. I think I may have made a mistake during my other tidying relating to SQL 2005 and upgrading to SQL 2008 and SQL 2008R2, all of which now seem to be on the Server! I'll follow your link after celebrating the New Year.

Have a happy one

Good luck with the TechNet article and all the best in the new year... SharePoint/SBS/SQL. Now there's a triple threat.
