SQL 2005 Install can you relocate DB an dlogs at this point?

hi, I would like the DB tempdb and logs to go on diffrent drives but dont get an option during set up

we normally use scripts which does all this but the script is way over my head in terms of editing it, it calls external assemblies etc
so. can it be done at install
is there a simple install script out there
or do i have to do it manually after install


cheers

No, but one thing you could do to automate it is create a script that has the necessary SQL commands

Then, create a batch file that first runs the sql install, and then, once complete, executes the SQL script you created above against the new server/instance.

That way, you just run the batch file and everything should be setup as desired.

I do not understand your question are you moving only the SQL databases or are you relocating the SQL server also?

Try this link:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/224071

We move databases all of the time by doing a backup and restore on different SQL Servers.

im installing a new Sql server

when the time comes i would like the databases that are created to automatically stor ethere Db and logs on diffrent drives.

I know how to do it after the fact, it would be nicer for me on the test rig to have this already done
