Well, there are times when you want to move your master database from the default location to some other drive. Now this activity cannot be done with the normal ALTER DATABASE statement with MODIFY FILE option. And you need a spacial handling for this case of master DB.
–> Let’s first check the location of master DB:
–> Now leave SSMS, and open SSCM i.e. SQL Server Configuration Manager. Here select “SQL Server Service”, and Rigth Click on the instance of SQL Server, and choose Properties. Now select the Startup Parameters tab.
Here you will see 3 line items:
1. -d is the path of the master data file.
2. -e is the path of the SQL error log file.
3. -l is the path of the master log file.
So, you need to update the 1st and 3rd ones. As I want to move my files to E:SystemDatabasesMaster
