SCOM 2012 R2 Operational Database Move Steps


Today I had to move a SCOM 2012 R2 Operational Database. I executed this process already for moving a Operational Database to a SQL Always On Cluster. For this move I used the Technet article as a reference. After this move I received from Data Access Service and the Configuration Service a service login error on the database. After double checking the steps made my only conclusion was that SCOM was still connecting to the old server. But what setting was the root cause for the error.

Migration WSUS database SQL2005 -> SQL2008


Today I installed my first Microsoft SQL 2008 server. I used Windows 2008 R2 as the underlaying OS. The installation was no problem so I decided to start with the migration of one of my SQL2005 Databases, the WSUS Database.

I searched the internet for documentation about it. But most of the information is about migrating the whole WSUS server. So I decided to give it a go on some information which I found for SCOM 2007. I did the following steps:

1. Stop WSUS and IIS services on you WSUS Server

2. I did a Detach on the SUSDB database on my SQL 2005 server

3. I moved the both the DATA and LOG file to my new SQL 2008 server

4. I did a Attach on the SUSDB database on my SQL 2008 server

5. I added a login on my SQL2008 server for the Computer Account on which the Update Services is running.

6. I edited the following REG key on my WSUS Server:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftUpdate ServicesServerSetup]
"SqlServerName"= "YOUR SQL 2008 Server"

7. Start WSUS and IIS services on you WSUS Server

After the it didn’t work for me, after the SQL 2008 Installation I forgot to configure my firewall to allow SQL traffic. So I added the following Inbound Rules to the firewall:

TCP - 135 – Transact SQL Debugger
TCP - 1433 – SQL Traffic
UDP - 1434 – SQL Browser Traffic
TCP - 2383 – SQL Analytics Traffic
TCP - 4022 – SQL Broker Traffic

After adding these rules everything works fine.
