I need to migrate the database used for DQS drill-through data to a new server. Does anyone know how to do this so that the existing profiles will be able to display the existing drill-through data? I am trying to avoid rerunning all of the plans (hundreds) to recreate the drill-through data. Thanks

All of the data was manually migrated to the new server but the profile output still points to the old server. The profile output file is not text or XML and there is no configuration file other than the plan file which creates the drill-through data. Of course, changing the plan means rerunning it and recreating the drill-through, which is what I ended up doing.

I cannot find any documentation on maintaining the drill-through database used by DQS. So there was no guidance on changed the DB server. The database we setup for DQS grew to hundreds of GB with lots of tables and no easy way to find out which could be deleted because the plan/profile no longer exists. I ended up dropping all of the tables and reran the plans to recreate the data. So I took care of the bloat at the same time.
