Hi Experts,

Just working on a client's site here, which we're planning on upgrading their equipment and moving them all to a new domain name.

Planning on moving a SQL Server 2005 Express machine from Domain A to Domain B... Does anyone forsee any issues occuring with the operation of SQL Server 2005 Express? I can't seem to find much information...

I think authentication will be an issue, but what does everyone else think?

Any info will be great.

Cheers,
Ray.

The only issue is if the sqlserver is using a domain account to operate.  These settings can be adjusted through the Sql server configration manager.
You may need to add the new domain administrator account to the security/login.

Note: before making any changes to the domain association, make sure you have the sa password which you can use with the SSMS express to fix issues as they arise.
