Switching from Named Pipes to Tcp/Ip sockets : can I use the same DB or will I loose my data? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    we use MDT 2013 in conjunction with a local SQL Express 2012 database. I configured MDT to use Named Pipes but I want to switch to TCP/IP sockets. Is it possible to change that Network Library for an existing database? Am I going to loose the contents of the existing db? Thanks for your insights.

  • Just did a testrun with a test deployment share. Made a db with Named Pipes, filled in some values. Created a new db and I was able to choose between some existing databases. I chose the test db and yes all the values are in it.

    Next I tried it with my main db and indeed nothing is lost. Pfjew.
