I wanted share the steps for successful movement of SCOM 2012 OPsMgr and DW databases movement to the new SQL server.
You can follow the below the below articles for OpsMgrDB and OpsMgrDW database movements.
- Apart from this, you will also have to edit the following registry settings on each management servers. I have seen customers are missing to edit this registry key and getting issues.
- On each Management you need to update the following registry keys.
a. Log on to the management server with Administrator permissions.
b. Click Start, select Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK to start Registry Editor.
c. Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SystemCenter\2010\Common\Database, double-click the name DatabaseServerName, and then change the value to the name of the SQL Cluster that will be hosting the OperationsManager Database, and then click OK to save your change.
(If you are using a named instance of SQL Server, be sure to use the ServerName\Instance name format.)
