Moving SP 2010 Foundation from one domain to another

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Can someone point me to the best procedure for migrating a SP 2010 Foundation instance from one domain to another. here is the process I am thinking should work:

Backup DB, IIS, and SP farm/site collections

Remove SP 2010

Remove member server from domain (holding the SP install)

Add member server to new domain

Now i am not sure here:

Do i have to migrate domain users used for SP install to new domain, using something like ADMT?

Restore DB, IIS, and SP

Monitoring and moving SharePoint foundation 2010 database on SBS 2008


I have successfully followed the white paper for upgrading SharePoint Services 3.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010. Other than an authentication link problem all went smoothly.

I do have two small problems. The Small Business Server console reports that SharePoint is not functioning (it is functioning as I can connect to the site), this is more a nussance as my daily reports are inaccurate and I hope if this is normal there is or will be a hotfix to repair the reporting. This also comes to the second more serious problem.

In upgrading the process moved the database from it's own drive back to the system drive. I should have payed more attention to the directories in the upgrade process. Live and learn. Since the reporting is wrong in the console the move database wizard also does not work. Knowing that SBS gets cranky when things aren't done with a wizard or in a super specific order, is there a proper way to move the database? I am beging to get the long list of warnings as the drive fills up.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.



SharePoint 2010 Foundation - Standalone - SQL Server Express 2008 R2 - Moving databases to another d


Setting up a new install who will be using SharePoint Foundation 2010 in Standalone mode. They do not have SQL SERVER 2008 so need to utilize the Standalone option and the latest version of SQL Server 2008 Express R2. They are just getting started with SharePoint and it is unknown how much the technology will be embraced to afford to purchase SQL Server at this point. I wanted to get that explanation out of the way before everyone tells me the best practice of installing in Farm mode only! I realize the best practice but sometimes we have to roll with the punches because getting a client to begin using SharePoint on their current budget is better than never getting the chance to use it at all.

So SharePoint Foundation 2010 is installed with the default SQL Server 2008 R2 Express instance. Is there a procedure for moving the databases to a new drive? What is the default instance name that is created? I'm having a hard time locating that information in the documentation. I've done this before with WSS 3.0 without issue but wondered if there were any documents on moving the newest databases and what the default instance name is. Thank you in advance.


moving Team Foundation Server 2010 site to SharePoint 2010 farm.....

What is the best way to move a Team Foundation Server site over to our SharePoint 2010 farm? Can someone please point me to some documentation on how? Thanks,

Moving sharepoint 2010 to a new domain


I have a sharepoint 2010 multi server environment (2 wfe, 1 app server, 1 DB, 1 FAST server) that I need to move to another AD domain.

The OldDomain is our Internal network, while the NewDomain is for external access. The NewDomain does trust the OldDomain.

I currently have all the services and web app pools running as accounts in OldDomain and would like them to stay that way. There is a one-way trust between the domains (NewDomain trusts OldDomain)

The only users currently setup are in OldDomain and should also remain, but we will be adding users from NewDomain.

  • Can I simply change the domain member ship of the machines and expect it to work?
  • Should I remove each server from the farm one by one then change the domain and re-add it to the farm?
  • Can/should SharePoint servers be in different domains, IE if I move the web front ends to allow people form the Newdomain to access the sites, can/should I leave the app and fast servers in the old domain?

The main thing that I cannot do is build a new farm and migrate sites, I don't have the time or the hardware.

Thank you

Issues after moving SP 2010 server to new domain


We moved our SP 2010 Foundation server from one domain to another. We ran through all of the commands mentioned in KB934838 here and all of the sites seemed to work without issue, however there are some areas throughout the Central Admin page we now can no longer access. One of the main areas is Configure service accounts. When navigating to this page, we get the following error:

How to upgrade from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 after mistanely de


I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0  (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Background of the case:

I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence  I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation 2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server... http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson

Moving SharePoint 2007 from Domain to a Workgroup


For development purposes, we have SharePoint 2007 installed on a virtual server (Wind 2003) on a company desktop (Vista Business ed.).  The SharePoint is using Active Directory and company domain. For learning purposes, we want to copy the virtual machine on another Vista machine that is outside the domain and is not using AD:

Question 1 : How can we move the SharePoint from a domain to a Workgroup
Question 2: Is it possible to still be able to use emails (through local installation of Outlook) on the same computer that is not on the domain? If, yes, what are the possibilities (any articles on it? Etc.)?


Trouble With Team Foundation Server/Visual Studio 2010

Hi At work we are 2 guys on the same project. We both program in visual studio 2010. The other guy complains that he don't see my changes. I know this dude have already executed "Get Latest Version", despite that he don't get my changes. Some more information that may be relevant:Each time I've done some changes to the source code on my local computer, when I run the code breakpoints are not triggered. I get a message saying something about mismatch between different version of the source (or something like that, weeks sinece I saw that message). It's a while since I saw that message becasue I've found a work-around: Each time I've done changes tothe source code I do this:- Clean Solution- Rebuild (Release)- Rebuild (Debug) When I've done that I can see my own changes.. But the other guy have trouble with seeing my changes. I'm not sure how to fix it so that he see my changes. I checkin regulary so my changes should be available on the Team Foundation Server. Any help on this would be very helpful
