I have a database developed using sql server 2000 and need to have a same mirror image of database on windows server 2008 (That didn't support sql server 2000) on sql server 2008 R2.

I restore the 2000 database on 2008 instance and it went sucessfully :).....

Is backup and restoring is the best way to create mirror image of databse on another PC ?

I need to update the 2008 database whenever change is made on 2000 database,Is it possible to do or not using Data transfer packages,triggers or any other solution u can recommend ?

What are the prons and crons of doing it ?
Can I restore Data Transfer Packages as well with the database ?


Need detail help regarding this issue

A restore is the simplest - but there may well be a script you need to run after the restore (see below).

As to the datatransfer packages - what do you mean? If this is packages that run on the source system that you want to be able to run on the 2008 system - then the packages need to be written to be portable i.e. no connections or environment specific data hard coded in the packages - then just change that data when they need to be run on the 2008 system. You may also have a dts/ssis issue.

This is also a lot easier if packages are held as files rather than in the database a it's just a matter of a file copy.



Cursors never.
DTS - only when needed and never to control.
