  • Hello Anil,

    You will need to re-run the installer, to change registry key and other stuff on the FIM Server. The steps are probably:

    • Install the new SQL Server
    • Be sure to export the FIMSynchronization encryption key
    • Stop FIMService and FIMSynchronization
    • Migrate the two databases
    • Run the installer to change the SQL Server location (for both FIMService and FIMSynchronization
