Move SCVMM DB Server

 

If you have moved SCVMM 2012 r2 (or earlier) the only official way to change is to uninstall and reinstall. However in my case I have moved from a SQL instance on a standard server to a AllwaysOn instance on the same host.

Instead of uninstalling SCVMM 2012 just modify a database string – then restart the SCVMM service if you did not stop before..

You should stop the SCVMM Service and Agent Services.

Open RegEdit on the SCVMM 2012 server and navigate too: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager Server\Settings\Sql

Under the SQL key, change all references to the old SQL Server, this includes the following sub-keys;

ConnectionString
DatabaseName
InstanceName
MachineFQDN
MachineName
