How to move WSUS database from 1 harddisk to another
Posted on 2009-05-05
I have WSUS running on my 2003 DC. I have 2 physical harddisks on the server. The first drive contains system and user files. The 2nd drive contains only WSUS database files. This 2nd drive is now beginning to have bad blocks. I don't want to replace the 2nd drive. I just want to have everything on 1 drive. So how can I move the WSUS database files to the 1st drive and change the WSUS settings to access the database files at the new location?
Do I also need to make changes under IIS?
Although I installed the entire system here, I have very limited knowledge about how WSUS and IIS function, so please assume you are speaking to a novice.
