Safely Change Site ID (GUID)

  Asked By: Aditiya    Date: Jan 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2457

I have built a Staging Portal Site on a Staging Server which will
become the Production Site soon. I have tested the migration to the
Production Server using Backup and Restore and everything looks
good. I am planning for Disaster Recovery of the Production Server
to switch to the Staging Server, if necessary. So I defined the
Staging Server to use multiple IP addresses and set up 2 Web Sites
to use unique IP addresses. The Staging Portal Site already exists
on it now. When I try to restore the Production Site onto the 2nd
Virtual Server, it says "Portal Site already exists and must be
deleted before restoring". Looking into the Log, I found out that
since I built the original Production Site from the Staging Site,
they both have the same Site ID (GUID). I would like to change the
Site ID of the Staging Site so it is different from the Production
Site. Is there any utility to do this? If not, can I safely modify
the Site ID directly in the SQL Server Tables?

Better plan is to setup the 2nd site  to use a different SQL server  instance...
