This article describes how to move the Enterprise Vault databases to a different SQL server or a new version of MS SQL Server.
To watch a video on this process see below.
Note: At minute 1:33 and 1:58, there is a tab called "Indexers" that is not shown. This is new in versions 10 and above. We are only concerned with the Database tab for this tutorial.
This process will consist of the following steps.
a. Right click Enterprise Vault at the root level and select Properties
2. Copy the backup files to the new SQL server.
1. Use the instructions and prewritten SQL script in the following article: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH64655
2. Repeat for each Fingerprint database.
2. Run the following query, substituting the New_SQL_Server value with the hostname of the new SQL server:
SET SQLServer = 'New_SQL_Server'
For 32bit systems, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\KVS\Enterprise Vault\Directory\DirectoryService.
For 64bit systems, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\KVS\Enterprise Vault\Directory\DirectoryService
2. Double-click the SQLServer Name string value.
3. Enter the name of the new SQL server in the value data field and click OK.
4. Start the Enterprise Vault Directory Service, this will also start the Admin Service.
2. Select the Database tab.
3. Next to SQL Server, enter the name of the new SQL server and click OK.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 for any remaining Vault Stores.
5. Start the remaining Enterprise Vault services.
1. For 32bit systems, Open Data Sources (ODBC) from the Administrative Tools panel on the Enterprise Vault Server. For 64bit systems, browse to %systemroot%\syswow64\odbcad32.exe
2. Select the System DSN tab.
3. Select the EVAudit entry.
4. Click the Configure button.
5. On the first page of the wizard, under Which SQL Server do you want to connect to?, enter the name of the new SQL server.
6. Continue through the wizard and click Finish to apply the changes.
2. Check the Event Viewer for errors connecting to databases.
3. Check the locations of the Directory, Fingerprint, and Vault Store databases again, as in Step 1. They should all display the name of the new SQL Server.
4. Do not forget to update any scheduled backup jobs so that they backup the new SQL Server. It is recommended that the copies of the EV databases on the old SQL Server not be removed until a full backup of the databases on the new SQL Server has been completed.
