Detaching a database removes its reference from the SQL Server, allowing you to safely move files to different locations. Database Manager allows you to detach a database and leave the data files of a database intact, as shown in the following procedure.

Note: SolarWinds does not recommend using the Detach Database option to migrate a database from one SQL Server to another. For more information, see Migrating your Database.

To detach a database:

1. Click Start  > All Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Advanced Features > Database Manager.

2. If the SQL Server hosting your Orion database is not listed in the left pane, you must add the SQL Server hosting your Orion database. For more information, see Adding a Server.

3. Click + in the left pane to expand the SQL Server hosting your Orion database, and then click your Orion database.

Note: NetPerfMon is the default name of the Orion database.

4. Click Database  > Detach Database from the menu.
