Move a FILESTREAM-Enabled Database

This topic shows how to move a FILESTREAM-enabled database.

Note Note

The examples in this topic require the Archive database that is created in Create a FILESTREAM-Enabled Database.

To move a FILESTREAM-enabled database

  1. In SQL Server Management Studio, click New Query to open the Query Editor.

  2. Copy the following Transact-SQL script into the Query Editor, and then click Execute. This script displays the location of the physical database files that the FILESTREAM database uses.

    USE Archive
    GO
    SELECT type_desc, name, physical_name from sys.database_files
    
  3. Copy the following Transact-SQL script into the Query Editor, and then click Execute. This code takes the Archive database offline.

    USE master
    EXEC sp_detach_db Archive
    GO
    
  4. Create the folder C:\moved_location, and then move the files and folders that are listed in step 2 into it.

  5. Copy the following Transact-SQL script into the Query Editor, and then click Execute. This script sets the Archive database online.

    CREATE DATABASE Archive ON
    PRIMARY ( NAME = Arch1,
        FILENAME = 'c:\moved_location\archdat1.mdf'),
    FILEGROUP FileStreamGroup1 CONTAINS FILESTREAM( NAME = Arch3,
        FILENAME = 'c:\moved_location\filestream1')
    LOG ON  ( NAME = Archlog1,
        FILENAME = 'c:\moved_location\archlog1.ldf')
    FOR ATTACH
    GO
