SQL SERVER DBA, Linux and Azure: How to start sql server without tempdb

How to start sql server without tempdb

When i try to take image of sql server for installation to new server  i could not restart sql server service on new server due to tempdb database files missing. In that image server where tempdb database files were placed on E:\mssql\data drive and  new sql server only got C: drive  and all system dbs there on c: drive  files. This solution is tested and worked fine.

--  SQL Server Path
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Binn
Step:1  You are going to  start sql using single user with minimal configuration on command prompt
 cmd-- > sqlservr -f -m
Now you create Folder on 'C:\MSSQL\DATA\
-- Open the second window for command prompt
c:\sqlcmd
1>
use master
go
ALTER DATABASE tempdb MODIFY FILE (NAME=tempdev, FILENAME='C:\MSSQL\DATA\Tempdb.MDF')
go
ALTER DATABASE tempdb MODIFY FILE (NAME=templog, FILENAME='C:\MSSQL\DATA\Templog.LDF')
go
>quit
