SharePoint 2010 Moving databases from Development to Live

I’ve setup SharePoint 2010 on a new server with the databases installed on one of our development SQL Server 2005 servers. I need to move the databases to the live SQL Server. I did a test, using this article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc512725.aspx, moving the databases to another development database server.

I used the stsadm command to change the database connection and the connection string in the registry for the Config database has changed so the command has run. When I look at the content database it is still referencing the first database server. Is there something else that I need to change?

Thanks in advance.
