My friend is stuck on moving a database stored in SQL Express 2008 Edition in a server (called server A) to SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Edition in another one (called server B). There are two SQL 2008 editions installed in the server A.
- SQL Server 2008 Standard
- SQL Express 2008
SharePoint is being run in server A (WFE/Application/Database role) and there are two content databases stored in SQL Express 2008. My friend just got the administration job. He doesn't know exactly what has happened because the ex-staff resigned without any confirmation. At this very moment, he is responsible for moving these content databases from server A to server B (SQL Server 2008 Enterprise is already installed in server B). After doing many times, he still can't attach these content databases to server B. I'm trying to help him by digging into SQL Server. Some errors often occurs:
- Exclusive access could not be obtained because the database is in use.
- The backup set holds a backup of a database other than the existing 'xx' database
Does anyone encounter this case? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
