I'm trying to transfer a database from SQL server 2000 to SQL Server 2008 using the copy database wizard, but I keep getting an error that tells me to check my error logs. I go check the log and there is nothing on the error. Has anyone had a problem with the copy database wizard and knows a fix for the problem or is there a better method to transfer the database?

Have you run the Upgrade Advisor? SQL Server 2008 isn't entirely backward compatible with 2000, so there might be some incompatibilities...

Did you check both the SQL Server logs and the Windows Event Logs?

  • Just the SQL Server logs I'll check the windows event logs. – norlando Dec 16 '09 at 17:42
