Moving a vss database to new server

Moving a vss database to new server

Moving a vss database to new server

We had a vss server/db where the admin password was lost.  We can still use it but want to move it to a new server/installation.  is there a way to move the database between servers similar to sql server?

RE: Moving a vss database to new server

Check http://weblogs.asp.net/korbyp/archive/2003/10/20/54226....
It seems to work but doesn't copy the user list or access rights.  The author does have a tool that can do that however.  During the part where you create a 'db3', whatever password you assign to 'db3' will end up as the password to 'db2'.  Hope this helps.
