Procedure for moving the backend data store

Procedure for moving the backend data store

Post by Chris Gree » Sun, 02 Oct 2005 02:28:44


I have a WSUS server that I need to relocate the \WSUS folder to
another drive so I can have all the WSUS content. I use a WMSDE
backend.

I would like to keep the system statuses, if possible. This has made
exporting the approvals, reinstalling, importing the approvals the
course of last resort. I can shut everything down, and change registry
keys, move stuff, and restart it. That seems error prone if I miss a
key.

I see that you can do wsusutil movecontent X:\newdir and it will
appropriately update the registry files. Is there an equivalent for
moving the entire x:\wsus backend directory in WMSDE?

Thanks,
Chris
