      • Detach the database by using the following commands:
      • use master go sp_detach_db 'firewall' go
      • Backup the data file and log file from the current location (<MSSQL Home>\data\firewall.mdf and <MSSQL Home>\data\firewall_log.LDF) to the new location (<New location>\firewall.mdf and <New Location>\firewall_log.LDF).
      • Re-attach the database and point to the old location by using the following commands:
