    ePO 4.5 move database files to different drive on same server

      I have ePO 4.5 running on a 2003 server, with database and log files currently resident in path c:\program files\common files\Mcafee\MSDE\ . To free up some space, I need to move these files to another drive on the same server.

       

      There are numerous KB's describing how to move databases to new servers and all talk about restoring to the same path, but I have found nothing documenting how to move between drives on the same server i.e. a different path. I think that I need to stop the services and use the SQL Server detach/attach functions to move the files themselves, but how does ePO then know where to find the db?

       

      Is there any documented guidance on this situation? Any advice will be much appreciated.
