    Hello there, This might involve export and import of the database for the location change as far as i understand. The choice of a database is not permanent for the current installation of IPAM Server. You can migrate IPAM data from a WID database to a Microsoft SQL database using the Move-IpamDatabase cmdlet in Windows PowerShell. You can also use this cmdlet to migrate data from one Microsoft SQL database to another. You cannot migrate IPAM data from Microsoft SQL to WID. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-server-2012-r2-and-2012/dn758112(v=ws.11) Hope this resolves your Query !! --If the reply is helpful, please Upvote and Accept it as an answer--
