The Scenario

Updated: March 19, 2013

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012

Fabrikam, a fictitious company, wants to move their current AD RMS databases from an existing Microsoft SQL Server 2008 server to a brand new server. Prior to doing this in production, Fabrikam would like to setup a test environment that will allow them to walk through the process of moving the database. This will also allow them to verify that everything is working after the database move.

The scenario outlined in this document has been developed and tested on one stand-alone computer running the 64-bit edition of the Windows Server® 2008 R2 operating system and Hyper-V. The servers have two 3.0 gigahertz (GHz) dual core processors and 8 gigabytes (GB) of RAM each. Using Hyper-V, the following six virtual machines were created on the hosts.
