(SQL) Tip of the Day: Moving a SQL Azure Database Server from One Subscription to Another

Today’s Tip…

Moving a SQL Azure Database Server from one subscription to another is quite simple. Make sure you are at least a Co-admin on the subscription you want to move both from and to, once you have verified that:

  • Login to https://manage.windowsazure.com
  • Make sure all the subscriptions are selected by clicking on the “Subscriptions” tab.
  • Click on?SQL?Databases.
  • Click on Servers.
  • Click on the server name which you would like to transfer.
  • Select “Dashboard” if it is not already selected.
  • Click on the “Change Subscription” link.
  • Choose the new subscription and complete the wizard.

It will take some time to fully transfer but should be available the whole time it is moving.
