I have SharePoint Server 2010 installed on Server A (all the roles are on the same machine),and now I need to add a new server B which must be the new database server, so I need to move all the databases from server A to server B and point SharePoint server to the new database server. In the end the server A will be web server and application server, and B will be the new database server. I followed the instructions in this article but nothing worked correctly - after I followed all the steps I opened the SharePoint central administration site only to receive an error "cannot connect to configuration database".

NOTES: port 1433 is opened on Server A and Server B, alias is working in SQL SERVER Management Studio.
