I would like to known if i can detach Sharepoint 2007 Databases from SQL Server 2008R2 (Windows Server 2008R2) and attach on SQL Server 2014 (Windows Server 2012R2) without migrate Sharepoint?

Assuming it's possible, here's what I would do:

  • Stop Sharepoint Services and IIS on my WFEs
  • Detach the Sharepoint DBs from SQL SERVER 2008R2
  • Attach all Sharepoint DBs on SQL Server 2014
  • Fire up all the Sharepoint Services and IIS again

Anyone have any recommendations?

Tks, Kenny

I guess SharePoint 2007 does not support SQL server 2012 or later version, so you cannot migrate on SQL server 2014.


As per above document:

Office SharePoint Server 2007 does not support SQL Server 2012 or later versions of SQL Server.
