Any idea why they did not bother with instructions for moving the database from one remote server to another? It seems the only option is to try to extrapolate the needed steps from the provided scenarios and hope for the best.
Yes, from what I've seen it's actually recommended to move the database to a separate server when using NTA 4.0 etc, from my understanding all you should have to do is make a backup of the current database (compress it so it's not that large of a file). and load it onto the new server that you want to host the database on. Then you need to go run the config wizard and point it to the new server that's hosting the database.
Hope this helps!
