Migrating or assigning a content database in Sharepoint- how to?

Posted on 2006-04-14

Experts- here's the skinny:

I set up a sharepoint portal, and starting making some sites. Well, now I have quite a few sites in use....and they are getting more "important" daily.

 How do I break them up and restore them so that they each have their own content database?

 In other words, I want each site to be independent of any other site, in case something gets goofed up on a single site, I can just restore that single site's database, rather than the entire site's database. Please advise- TIA

    There's a tool here: that might be what you're looking for. i've used it in the past to split up large content databases. it locks, backs up, deletes and restores a site thereby splitting the db's

    read through it before you try it though.
