SharePoint 2013 databses

How do you change the SharePoint database servers in 2013?

For example I have two SQL 2008 R2 Servers named Sever 1 and Server 2 and I need to change the SharePoint database server from Server 1 to Server 2.

Hi,
do you also want to move the existing databases?
If yes, then here is a complete step-by-step article from the MSDN documentation:

Note: This wasn't supported in SharePoint 2010 and older and is new to 2013.  Backup everything before you try it and be sure to execute every step.  Once a SharePoint installation is broken it's brutal to fix.

Instead of moving the databases, it was easier to preform a farm restore. All is well and working as expected.

Restoring the farm worked to fit our needs.
