We're in the process of migrating SQL 2000 to SQL 2005.
We're going to use the existing "box" that runs SQL 2000 as a temporary external back up device.
Slowly we are moving the data and log files over ...
Under Windows 7, we are able to easily copy files from one server to the other ... from SQL2000 to SQL2005 boxes. Thus the new server can "see" and copy from the old box to the new.
But when we want to start backing up (already) to the old box ... SQL2005 is not including in the pull down list (browse) anything but the local server.
No network option.
We right click on the given database, in the Destination list at bottom, we see a local folder; we click Add. then click on the elipses; and only see the local server.
What am I doing wrong?
