Hi,

I would like to migrate ESXi 5.1 SQL Express to SQL.
Can I just shutdown SQL services + esxi, then detach database, reattach on SQL server, then change SQL connection string/ODBC?

Please advise.
J.

Yep. You can detach the database from SQL Express and copy over to SQL server and attach it, then change the ODBC to point to the new server.

Also make sure you have TCP/IP connections enable on your new SQL server.
