Database Drive Change FIM 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Can I move the FIMSync DB (MDF) file from ONE Drive to ANOTHER on the same server. Database wise it is possible to move. 

    I would like to know if this would affect FIM Sync.

    Any precautions before doing this ?

    As long as SQL can find it, not a problem.

  • I think you can safely do that.  FIM does not even know where the file is located.

    FIM Knows about the name of DB and SQL server name or instance

  • Mujeeb,

    Nothing to worry.

    Go for it, but after the proper connection to the DB in SQL Server you might have to enable broker service in FIMService DB which can prevent you from starting the FIM Service after the connection is completed.

    Once both the services of FIM are up you are good to go.
