Where the hell is ConfigDB name stored for Sharepoint ?

leave a comment »

Did you even hit the wall looking for the name of Sharepoint configDB ? Today I struggle for a bit of time trying to find it. On the beggining I was trying to simply find the command for stsadm, but soon I found there there is no "opeartion" to get name of configDB :(. You can delete configDB, you can set new one, but no option to get name of the current one :(. On the end I found somewhere on one blog that you can get this only thru:
– SharePoint API call (if you want to get this info quick this is not an option – at least if you don’t know powershell)
– Registry dig
if case of secound option, just have look at entry : HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\12.0\Secure\ConfigDB and you will find your answer.
have fun
