Change database for Fortress?

Post by Volker » Fri Jul 17, 2009 6:17 am


ist it possible to change database for Fortress. Background is, that we tested Fortress with MSDE 2000, but now our productive project is to large for MSDE database. So I want to backup existing Fortress database on MSDE, move them to our SQL Server 2005 and change settings in Fortress Admin, but I can't see, where I do these settings.

I'd recommend uninstalling Fortress first, leaving the databases in place. Then, you should be able to backup your MSDE databases (sgvault, sgdragnet and sgmaster) and restore them to the new SQL Server 2005 machine. Then reinstall Fortress.
