Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I’d like to know what should I prepare and pay special attention to in migrating and consolidating the SQL Server 2000 database into SQL Server 2005 ? From what I can think of now is that manual Backup and restore is the way to go here.

Any kind of help and suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I normally use the backup and restore method, set the compatibility level to SQL 2005, and run DBCC UPDATEUSAGE (0);
