I am going to a move a server to production. The present production is 2005 enterprise, now i am going to move this production to 2008 r2 slandered.
Here is my Question
What are the steps to follow to move server to production?
If something happen to the production what are the steps to rollback?
Could you please give me some suggestions?
Start by running the Upgrade Advisor against your current databases and resolve any recommendations it makes regarding compatibility. Since you are moving from Enterprise Edition to Standard Edition you'll also want to make sure you are not using any Enterprise-only features that may cease to function when you migrate.
My preference is to install a new instance so that in the event the migration goes poorly and we do not proceed on the new instance, we simply bring operations back online on the pre-existing instance.
