    Moving Solarwinds Database to new cluster

    bharris

      Our DB team wants to move the Solarwinds DBs to a newer SQL cluster.  They will be shutting down the current SQL cluster, detaching the DB from the old cluster and then reattaching it onto the new cluster.

       

      We have most of the services (SAM, WPM, IPAM, UDT) on the main NPM server, but have NCM on a separate server and 5 different pollers. What services will we have to stop before they start? Can we just stop the stuff on the main server or will we have to stop all services?  When the databases have been reattached, what are the steps we need to take to point it to the new cluster?  For example, restart services, run config manager, etc?
