How do I move the location of my data repository?
Posted by Latika on 30 November 2018 05:39 AM

To move your data repository (it’s basically an SQL server database) to a new location you can follow one of
the steps below depending on your situation: 

  1. If SQL Server Express was installed by Docsvault:
    From the Docsvault Server Manager dialog, go to the Repository node and use the “Change...” button
    in the Repository Location to choose a new location for your repository. See image below for reference



  2. If you are using your own SQL server to host Docsvault Data:
    Use SQL Server Management Studio to detach your database, move all database files (*.mdf, *.ldf and
    the DVFStream folder) to the new location, and reattach the database with the same db name. No configuration
    change is required on the Docsvault side for this move as in this case Docsvault simply connects to your SQL
    server database and is not aware of the actual db file locations.
