    Migrating a vCenter database

    peter79 Enthusiast



      Our database guys need to move the vCenter database (4,1) to a new SQL server.  The DB guys will move the database but I'm trying at work out what steps I need to carry out as well.  Note the database is not on the vCenter server itself.  I'm thinking that following should take place.


      1.  Backup database.

      2.  Stop vCenter service.

      3.  Migrate DB to new server (work will be carried out by DB guys).

      4.  Delete old System DSN and create a System DSN pointing to the new SQL server.

      5.  Start vCenter service.


      Am I missing any steps?
