Transferring to New Server

By Simon Davies - Thursday, March 15, 2018 9:48:46 PM


Here at HRB we are moving to a new Server.

What SQL file do I need to move?

Once done, is it just a case of pointing all the play-out machines at the new server?

Hi Peter,

We are running SQL server.

I think I am getting closer to fixing this? I have opened the port on the firewall. But still get an Login in error. Anyone have any ideas to fix that one?


Hi Simon,

I may be completely wrong but do you not need to have a database instance name after the name of the server as Peter mentioned above so  Server2018\Instancename. Also make sure the security login (windows authenication vs sql authenication) is set correctly.

Wonder whether something on this page will help -
