The SQL Server database files are typically located on the same server as the Blackbaud Management Console (Blackbaud Management Console).  However, if using SQL Server Standard or Enterprise Edition, the database files can be located on the server where SQL Server is running.

To find the location of the database files:

  1. Open the Blackbaud Management Console
  2. Under the listed products, highlight the appropriate database
  3. The Primary file path, as listed in the Properties frame to the right, shows the current path to the selected database.



If Blackbaud hosts your database, The Raiser's Edge SQL Server database files are kept on our secure servers in our data center.
