Article ID: 677  |  Last updated: 23 Dec, 2014

You can configure the Surround SCM Server to use a different server database. For example, you may want to point to the server database in a new location on the RDBMS server after moving it or use a backup copy of the database if you experience problems. You should not need to frequently change the server database.

  1. Make sure you are logged in to the Surround SCM Server you want to change.
  2. Choose Tools > Administration > Server Options.
  3. Select the Server Database category.
  4. Click Change. The Surround SCM Server Database Connection dialog box opens.
  5. Select a Connection Type.
  6. Enter the Connection Information. The fields displayed depend on the selected connection type.
  7. Click Test to test the connection. The Test Connection dialog box opens and displays the results.
  8. Click Close to close the Test Connection dialog box.
  9. Click OK to change the database location.
  10. Click OK to apply the changes.
  11. Stop and restart the Surround SCM Server.
