The Blackbaud Management Console does not support attaching an existing database when the database file and transaction log file are in separate locations on the server.

To work around this issue when moving to a new server:
  1. Make a backup of the database in the Blackbaud Management Console on the old server
  2. Copy the backup to the new server
  3. Run the Attach database wizard in the Blackbaud Management Console on the new server
  4. After selecting the backup file, adjust the file destinations and select the folder where the database file will reside.
  5. Finish attaching the database.

To work around this issue when re-attaching a database to the Blackbaud Management Console on the same server:
  1. Locate and use a backup of the database instead of database files
  2. Run the Attach database wizard in the Blackbaud Management Console
  3. After selecting the backup file, adjust the file destinations and select the folder where the database files will reside
  4. Finish restoring the backup
