Sharepoint copy to new hardware via virtual images and SQL DBs
Posted on 2014-02-04
We have a Citrix snapshot image from 1/27. The snapshot was taken from a VM that is in a SAN that is having issues. This image is a complete snapshot of the SharePoint server. It's also a domain controller. Couldn't open the snapshot on different hardware, restore a current system state, and then mount the current SQL DBs? We plan on dismounting the production SQL DBs and copying the DATA and LOG files to the new image. Would this work? The web folders shouldn't be changing.. I figured only the SQL DBs would be.
