Moving Central Management Store from SfB frontend to SQL server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Do anyone know how to move the Central Management Store from SfB frontend to SQL server? I want to get rip of the SQL Express from SfB frontend server and move the database to SQL Standard Server.

    Is it possible?

    Daniel.

  • Hi,

    You need to deploy a Front End pool and then you can move the CMS from the Standard Edition Server to the enterprise environment. The SQL location will be automatically determined based upon what the pool already uses.

    Here is an article for reference.
