WSUS 3.0 SP2 をデータベースごと移行する方法について

こんにちは。マイクロソフトの美馬です。 WSUS 3.0 SP2 をデータベースごと移行する手順をご紹介いたします。 移行する方法としては、レプリカを利用する方法と、データベース自体を移行する方法の 2 通りがあります。   前者(レプリカ利用)は、旧環境と新環境が同一ネットワークに存在する状態となりますので、既存クライアントへの影響が少なくてすむ反面、ホスト名や IP アドレスは別となり、同期される間はネットワーク負荷がかかる可能性があり、オプション設定やクライアント情報は移行できません。 一方、後者(データベース移行)は、旧環境と新環境で同じホスト名や IP アドレスを同じ場合に利用でき、オプション設定なども同時に引き継ぐことができますが、旧環境との並行運用はできません。 どちらの方法でも、移行先・移行元の OS / プラットフォーム (x86, x64) の相違は問いません。   レプリカ利用における移行方法は、下記 Blog でご紹介しておりますので、ご参照ください。 WSUS サーバーを新しいハードへ移設したい http://blogs.technet.com/b/jpwsus/archive/2012/05/07/wsus-server-replace.aspx   WSUS 3.0 SP2 をデータベースごと移行する手順は下記のとおりとなります。 <前提条件など> 全データは媒体経由で移行できますので、旧環境と新環境とがネットワークで接続されていなくても問題ありません。   <この手順により移行される情報> すべての情報が移行されます。   <作業手順> 1) 移行先に WSUS 3.0 SP2 をインストールしておきます。 ※更新ファイルの格納パスなど、インストーラ―に対して指示する設定値は旧環境と同じにしてください。   2) データベースとして Windows Internal Database を使用している場合は、データベース…
