2012 Collation Change


  • I installed SQL Server 2012 on a new server last weekend.  I have no databases on the server yet and want to change collation.  Is there an easy way to accomplish this (or do I just uninstall and re-install?)

  • Hi,

    You can Rebuild the master database specifying the new collation.
