Migrating Altiris Deployment server database to another SQL server

Hello,
I am trying to Migrate Altiris Deployment server (SQL) database to another SQL server.
Does anyone have experience of doing this as I can't even see an option to change where Altiris gets the data from?
We are using Altiris Deployment Server version 6.9 Sp 4
If anyone has any experience of this please let me know.
Thanks, Ryan.

In your Altiris programm you should have an option to change the datasource.
If you can't figure it out, try renaming the old server with suffix _old and new server to the same name as old server.
Old Server:
Rename the server and change the ip address some thing else...flush the dns and reboot...
New Server:
Rename the server and change the ip address as same as old one then reboot...you should be back in business..

The database currently sits on a SQL 2005 database on the same server as Altiris DS.
We have actually already taken a copy of the database & imported it into a new SQL 2008 server - However our problem is with Deployment Server itself - we don't know how to tell the program to point elsewhere to pick up it's database?

I am having the same issue.  In our case, the current SQL server is different from our deployment server.  We want to move to a new SQL server.  I am not able to find anywhere in Altiris to change the datasource.
