Sharepoint Link changes...
March 17, 2010 10:08 AM   Subscribe

I need help either changing all links in a sharepoint(sql server) database to point to a new file server. Is there a way to do a find/replace in the sql server database for sharepoint to change the links? or do i have to do something else?

In Sharepoint we have a bunch of lists that have links to one of our file servers \\server1\xxFolder

We are upgrading to a new larger file server \\server2.
We will keep the same folder structure, just different machines of a different name.

So is there an easy way to do this, or should i create some sort of redirector?

we don't want to break the links, nor break sharepoint.

Can you not just call the new server "server1"? Is there another reason for the name change?

If it is a SQL server you should be able to just use UPDATE.

Within SharePoint, you can go to a list, select Actions, Edit in Datasheet. From there, it is easier to do bulk edits/changes.
