We wrote down a few notes while moving GoldMine databases from a SQL 2012 Express instance on one server to a SQL 2016 Standard instance on another server. This is not a detailed procedure, but if you are familiar with SQL and GoldMine, you may find it useful. We’re currently using GoldMine 2017.1.0.377.
Big Tip: Move one database at a time while you are still logged in to another database on the old server. You can only edit database aliases while logged in to GoldMine, and you can only log in to GoldMine if you can open a database. So open a dummy database and work on your other databases.
