It is not possible to have multiple content databases service a single site collection. You would need to find a way to actually migrate the content from your one site collection to multiple site collections.
In situations where there is a single site collection that holds a bunch of sub-sites, such as in an Intranet scenario, I would look at moving the ...
The only reason is that your contents are still residing in SP Content database. Just verify following URL once and check whether you skipped deleting items from this locations.
SiteUrl/_layouts/15/AdminRecycleBin.aspx?view=2 is the ...
As James mentions it's not a valuable comparison as it's two completely different tools. No "SharePoint is not a database" and no "SQL is not a collaboration, document management, ... platform".
But to answer your question only point 7 and 8 has been changed (fixed) in SP2013.
For more information: Here is my take on the eight points:
Primary and foreign ...
Make sure that you have deleted the items in Site Collection Recycle Bin
Once the document is deleted it moved to 1st stage recycle bin. It stays there based on the web application recycle bin setting that (default is 30 days). after this period finished (30 days) it moved to 2nd stage recycle bin it also called Site Collection Recycle Bin.
In 2nd ...
In SharePoint 2010 you can add additional Content Databases to your Web Application and then use the Move-SPSite PowerShell command to move site collections from one database to the other.
To add a Content Database: Goto Central Admin > Application Management > Manage Content Databases. Select your web application and add a database.
To use the Move-...
James is so right, it's not SharePoint vs SQL Server, it's a matter of using the right tool for the right business needs but to go deeper in these assumptions
Cascading Delete / Primary & Foreign Keys are available since SP2010 and handled through built-in features like :
Unique Column policy
Joins between lists
There is an information worker download of a complete environment from Microsoft. This includes a pre-populated sample AD, documents, lists, libraries, profiles, etc. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/cjohnson/archive/2011/09/15/2010-information-worker-demonstration-and-evaluation-virtual-machine-sp1.aspx
Why not simply using Central Admin... :-)
(works even if you do NOT have access to either the physical server (console) or databases server.
Central Admin -> Upgrade and Migration -> Review Database Status.
By pasting /_admin/DatabaseStatus.aspx at your CA url.

SharePoint will store the full copy of any document/page for each version of that document/page. In some cases (as with Wiki pages), SharePoint will highlight content to show what changed from version to version, but with documents and pages, the entire file is stored in the content database. This is why storing multiple different versions of large documents ...
Apologies if this doesn't directly answer your questions, but I think the main point to be made here is that SQL databases and Microsoft SharePoint solve two completely different issues.
Can you store documents and collaborate with people using SQL out of the box?
Can you find colleagues with similar skills, interests who have uploaded documents you are ...
SharePoint always stores the full file. It never tries to do diffs.
I haven't seen it documented regarding Site pages anywhere but if you ON A DEV BOX tries this:
Create a new Team site with relative url "Team"
Modify Home.aspx in SharePoint Designer
Turn on Major/minor versioning of "Site Pages"
Check out Home.aspx
Modify Home.aspx in SharePoint Designer
In terms of technology opportunities and capabilities you could :
1. Create your own Visual Studio BDC Model where you could create your own Entities, with relationships mirroring your configurations - additionally you could rely on Stored Procedures for various operations not available otherwise, e.g. Updates across multiple tables, View selecting from ...
The procedure described in these articles should work just fine. I've done this multiple times.
You don't need to install the SQL Management or Client Tools on every SharePoint server. Just us the cliconfg.exe program to setup the alias. You can find more information on my blog at:
The search database is not a content database. You need to upgrade using the SharePoint 2010 Farm Configuration Wizard. I would run that and see where it gets you and then you can find any errors in the upgrade logs.
Here is a link to help.

Don't touch the database, but instead of deleting items from 2nd stage Recycle Bin using PowerShell, try disabling it from Central Admin first before running the PS script:
Central Administration > Application Management > Web Application General Settings > Set Recycle Bin > Second stage Recycle Bin > OFF
Or using PS:
It appears that when you created the new web application and database that it is already attached. If that is the case, then running the command will fail, you cannot add a content database that is already added. To check to see if this is the case, you can go into Central Adminsitration and view the content databases that are attached to the web application....
Here are the instructions for moving the databases for:
Also, it is a Best Practice to use SQL Aliases when referencing any instance of SQL server from a SharePoint farm. Doing so makes all future database moves a great deal easier.
AFAIK, using the existing services; it is not possible to access the content database informations from Client Object model or services. As a work around you can create your own WCF service and deploy it in SharePoint, which can provide your required data.

Whilst a content database can contain more than one site collection. A site collection however, can contain only one content database. RBS can be used to prevent database growth as it stores data in physical location. See more about RBS here:
In your scenrio before migration make sure following things.
both sharepoint farm are on the same version level.
all the custom solution deployed to test farm as they are in production
authentication is properly configured in the test as you did in prod.
Now for Content DB of web app.
take the backup of content db from production web app

You must use cliconfg.exe on each SharePoint server to point the 'old' SQL Server name (and instance if applicable) to the new SQL Server name (and instance if applicable). So if you had an old SQL Server name of OLDSQL and a new one of NEWSQL, you would run cliconfg.exe on each SharePoint server, go to the Alias tab, add an alias named OLDSQL. Set it to TCP/...
Where does SharePoint list stores data in SQL?
In SharePoint Content DataBase at AllLists INNER JOIN AllUserData ON AllLists.tp_ID = AllUserData.tp_ListId where the data stored at AllUserData.tp_ColumnSet column as XML
Can I access data directly and is it recommended?
No, it's not recommended and not supported and I advise you
to don't touch the ...
There are many possible answers to this. Here are a few:
Create a sharepoint list with approval turned on (list settings), and use a flow to handle the multiple approvers. Upon approval, the flow could add a new list item in the calendar list
Do the above, but also add fields to the form for the approver name, approver comments, approval date, etc. At this ...
I think that using the BCS to connect to your database table would be the most effective way. Where that table lives is up to you. You could move it to the SharePoint server or another SQL server in order to remove the old sql server from the network.
If the BCS is not an option, then you will either need to import the data into a SharePoint list or ...
It's make me to laugh sometime when i look at SharePoint the way programmed.
My scenario really sucks, We have a huge 1.3 Tera (single) content database, and we thought we need reduce the size the share point be faster,
We planned to create a custom to archive old content/documents to the separate record center and it's archived, here comes the truth the ...
Yes, you can do a SharePoint 2010 install in a manner that will allow you to specify the names of all your SharePoint databases, so you can enforce a naming convention that you can use to distinguish between the various farms that the databases are associated with. The challenge is that you won't be able to use the Product Configuration Wizard GUI interface ...
All queries against SharePoint data should be done through the SharePoint Object Model or Web Services. Creating solutions that access the database directly will result in an unsupported installation of SharePoint.
Though you have nothing preventing you from doing direct SQL queries, you will not get any support on this site for doing anything that will ...
