HI every one
I have SQL SERVER 2005 on Windows server 2003r2. We want to upgrade it from the SQL Server 2005 instance to the SQL SERVER 2008 with WINDOWS SERVER 2008 R2 on the separate Server. (Side-by-Side Upgrade).Any experience to share? Any Step by step? Any problems to avoid?


Thanks you in advance for your help.

Run the upgrade advisor, fix any issues it reports, then all I can say is test, test again, then test the test again before doing the actual upgrade.

Ensure you are happy with the upgrade and everything works fine before letting users access otherwise rolling back and loosing data a day, week month after upgrade will be a pain in the backside.

Remember that Google (or other search engines you prefer) are your friend, all the information you have asked for can be found by a few searches on the internet.

1 - Upgrade advisor can analyse remote instances except SSRS servers, so you can have it installed on your desktop and check your 2005 server to see if it is upgradable. Doesnt matter where it is installed as long as it can see the SQL server which is live at the moment (so your 2005 server)
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=11455

2 - Assuming that upgrade advisor shows no issues in upgrading, Switch off all applications from access SQL, backup all databases, create all server wide objects, logins, linked servers, triggers etc. Migrate databases using what ever method you want to use. Test Test Test Test Test. Rebuild all indexes, rebuild all statistics, recompile all objects http://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/1936/sql-server-database-migration-checklist/

3 - Use SSIS to transfer logins using the login transfer task, or use sp_help_revlogin http://support.microsoft.com/kb/246133
All other server objects need to be scripted and redeployed, unless you manually recreate them on the other side. Easy enough to do just right click the object in 2005 and select script as.

4 - Upgrading SSIS packages, read this link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc280546%28v=sql.100%29.aspx

Anthony already gave you enough information for the upgrade. It will be great if you can post your experiences after the migration, so that others could benefit from your experiences.
