This question already has an answer here:

I have a database on sql server 2017 standard edition with in memory OLTP feature enabled, I have to move it on another disk, which is the best way to do it? are there any possible problems?

Can I manage to get rid of this OLTP feature? Somebody said to drop an re- create the db ? but how ... preserving the data ?

I have this script :

   SELECT type_desc, name, physical_name from sys.database_files  
   USE master  
   EXEC sp_detach_db mydb
   PRIMARY ( NAME = mydbdata,  
       FILENAME = 'Y:\Database\SQLServer\DATA\mydbdata.mdf'),
   ( NAME = mydbdata2,  
       FILENAME = 'Y:\Database\SQLServer\DATA\mydbdata2.mdf'),  
   FILEGROUP FileStreamGroup1 CONTAINS FILESTREAM( NAME = mydbdata_mod1,  
       FILENAME = 'Y:\Database\SQLServer\DATA\mydbdata_mod1')  
   LOG ON  ( NAME = mydbdata_log,  
       FILENAME = 'Z:\Database\SQLServer\DATA\mydbdata_log.ldf')  
   ,  ( NAME = mydbdata_log2,  
       FILENAME = 'Z:\Database\SQLServer\DATA\mydbdata_log2.ldf')  

update: this dba.stackexchange.com/questions/52007/… replies to the question how to move , and it's ok but there are a lot of methods ... although I am confident with all methods. My fear it's all about the OLTP feature and the OLTP files

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Once a memory-optimized filegroup is added to a database, it's not possible to remove it. You would need to migrate your "traditional" data to a new database, then drop the original database, and rename the new to the old.

Why do you want to remove the memory-optimized filegroup?

    There is no "best script" to do that - I'm afraid you'll have to write it yourself. Or perhaps use SSIS. – NedOtter Jan 16 at 17:03
