:book: Introduction

Welcome to the official page for the Reconfigure System Center Operations Manager for Database Move Tool. This tool is compatible with all versions of Operations Manager and is designed to help you manage SQL connections used by Operations Manager.

This script automates the steps outlined here:

:spiral_notepad: Note

The script does not edit the Reporting Services Data Warehouse Data Source -> Connection String
(shown here (change to https if you are using SSL Certificates): http://<reportingServerURL>/Reports/manage/catalogitem/properties/Data%20Warehouse%20Main)
  You will need to update the Connection String value to the correct data, here is an example of mine:

data source=SQL01-2022;initial catalog=OperationsManagerDW;Integrated Security=SSPI

:page_with_curl: How to Use

You have multiple ways to download the SCOM Reconfigure DB Move GUI Tool:

  2. Download and run the EXE: EXE Downloads
  3. Download or Copy the Powershell Script to Powershell ISE: Powershell Script
  4. Download or Copy the Powershell Script to Powershell ISE: Text Format Alternative Download Link

The script by default will attempt to gather the current database connection from the local registry. If it is unable to locate the registry keys the Database Connection box will be empty. If it is empty you will need to manually type the values in here. The Values to Set section is required for the script to run and you will need to manually populate these fields. The Management Servers section is also required for you to be able to set which Management Servers to update the Database information on.

This script will log actions to the Application Event Log. Look for the Event Source: SCOMDBMoveTool

You will get prompted each time you run the script to accept the license agreement, unless you select do not ask me again, when you select this it will save a file to your ProgramData Directory:
