We are in process of building a new Server for our SQL 2005.
The current SQL Server 2005 , we made few configuration changes to it over the period of 3-4 years (example being some linked servers) which is not documented .

We would like to have all the configuration exported from the current server and load those configuration into new server.

Some of the things i can think of are

- Server settings
- All Existing the Logins
- All Linked Servers
- xp_command shell Configuration
- Config for Activex
- Database Email Configurations
- Jobs/alerts/
- Configuring the secure locations

Is there a utility available to do that ?

Hi Friends,

there is no Utility available in sql server.

1.You can create generate scripts(script for databases and objects inside databases (Logins,
2.Linked server :
3.u can take backup of master and msdb and model database restore on your target server.(server settings and database mail configurations and jobs and alerts..etc)

maybe this will help you ..
