When i am trying to shift msdb database from it's default path(C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.SQLEXPRESS\MSSQL\DATA) to another drive(E:\). After shifting the database i am getting error as shown below.(the error i am getting while expanding database node in SSMS an d now i am not able to access any database.)

Failed to retrieve data for this request. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc)

For help, click: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?ProdName=Microsoft+SQL+Server&LinkId=20476

------------------------------
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)

------------------------------

Database 'msdb' cannot be opened due to inaccessible files or insufficient memory or disk space. See the SQL Server errorlog for details. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 945)

For help, click: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?ProdName=Microsoft+SQL+Server&ProdVer=10.00.2531&EvtSrc=MSSQLServer&EvtID=945&LinkId=20476

------------------------------


The procedure i followed to shift msdb database is as follows:

1. For each file to be moved, run the following statement.

ALTER DATABASE msdb
MODIFY FILE ( NAME = MSDBData , FILENAME = 'E:\MSDBData.mdf' )
ALTER DATABASE msdb
MODIFY FILE ( NAME = MSDBLog , FILENAME = 'E:\MSDBLog.ldf' )

2. Stop the instance of SQL Server to perform maintenance.
3. Move the file or files to the new location.
4. Restart the instance of SQL Server or the server.
Also i did confirm the path by running following query

SELECT name, physical_name AS CurrentLocation, state_desc

FROM sys.master_files

WHERE database_id = DB_ID(N'msdb');

And output was showing current location of both MSDBdata and MSDBLog as E:\


This error happened while i did it for testing server. I want to do it for a production server. So please help me on this error. How exactly to shift msdb database?

Probably the point 3 is an issue "Check if the account which is trying to access the database has enough permission to perform operation." if not check other points

I'm with ed44 on this, very likely to be permissions (OS error 5).

check your SQL server errorlog for more information on the actual cause of the error.

As a default, only administrators will have ACLs to read and write files to the root of a drive. Create a folder and give the database engine sufficient permission, then move the files using the sequence you have already performed
