I've a CVA database located on the C drive of our CAS server. I wish to move it to another drive on the same server. What steps should I take aside from detaching and reattaching the SQL database ?

By CVA do you mean Console ? Which version do you have?

Yes, the console. We have CAS version 12.3.4.18. Thanks

Hello Adrian,

I guess you can use the following documented steps for (Moving the tempdb database) to move the RUM Console database.

Hi Adrian,

Well, I believe you can do it as you said detaching/attaching db. So, I would stop a service, detach db, copy .mdf, .ldf, attach db and run the service. This way you don't have to restart sql service.

Thanks for your thoughts on this.

I performed a standard detach / attach of the cva database and this worked fine.

The tempDB was also located on the C drive. I ran an Alter Database script to move the tempDB file location and restarted the SQL service.

Of note, the home page for our DC RUM (application health status) did not show up any applications or statistics after the SQL restart. Had to wait 15 mins for this to reappear. So don't panic if you do not see status information immediately after doing a DB move.
