Hello All,

We have sql 2005 32 bit servers with DB, jobs, reports, maintanence plans etc, now we have to migrate it to sql 2008 64 bit.

Assuming all the DB names remain same withe different server names.

1.DB - will back up restore will work?
2. Jobs - will MSDB back up restore will work or job scripting?
3. reports - will reports DB backup and restore will work along with Encryption keys backup restore?
4. Maintanence Plans - will MSDB back up restore will work?
5. what about space requirement will that be same?

please provide your thoughts on this.

You need to do the usual testing to ensure that nothing in the app breaks on SQL 2008 R2.

Doubtful on #3. The RDL format will be different too so you're looking at an RS Reports migration here too.

The engins upgrade itself is pretty safe. Start with running Upgrade Advisor against the 2005 instance and address all feedback.

32 to 64 bit has some extra challenges if you're reaching out to external resources from within the engine, e.g. OPENROWSET, Linked Servers, OLE Automation, xp_cmdshell, SQL Agent CmdExec steps, etc.

Are you using SSIS anywhere? There are some 32 to 64 bit challenges there as well.

Thanks OPC, we dont have SSIS.

we are moving to different domain and server so this is not upgradation.

Is there any way to do reports migration and individual user accesses for the reports.

Looks like a migration (without upgrade) is supported by taking the database with you:
