People,

I'm currently migrating SQL server 2012 running on AD domain joined Windows server 2008 R2 to another physical box.

Assuming the image backup is able to capture both drives C and D drives, but disjoint the AD domain, is there anything that I need to know before starting the SQL server ?

The restored server will not be domain joined but the name will remain the same.

Does SQL server going to crash or complained when I rejoin the server again to AD under same name ?

you only need to stop sql server before the image to make sure the sql file image will be consistent
after the join, the only "issues" you may have is to recreate and regrant the logins based on windows (domain) accounts, if any

Guy Hengel is right,

before that make sure you have the sql authentication enabled on that database and you have the password for that

all the best

Thanks for the clarification guys.

I will reset the SA account first.

The backup will be using Symantec System Recovery 2013 R2, so it is offline using bootable CD.

recreate and regrant the logins based on windows (domain) accounts
How to do that ?

here is what I referred to:

you may need to create new logins, and then map the users (from the databases) to the new logins

Guy,

So do I just remap the AD domain account or the SQL account ?

i don't think this could happen in your case of "orphaned User" as SID of the user is same as existing ...because domain user is not changing i believe...

the best option is if it's in production environment first of all take DB backup safe side, test it on any of VM

then proceed to production.

all the best

@Shaik M. Sajid,

Cool, that does make sense.

I suppose if I commission new server with new name & IP address from scratch, I can then just restore the SQL database backup ?
