I am at my client location and they have assigned me a migration task from SQL server 2005 to sql server 2008.

I should first do it on the test server and I have never done this before. Could someone please help me how and what to start with. What is the procedure for migration?

You have a two way of upgrade Side-by-Side Upgrade or In-Place Upgrade.
First you should run the Upgrade Advisor http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=11455
Then you should read this

Thanks for the initial help. I have now got a clear picture of what to do. The requirement goes like this.

Test environment - We have 15 user databases to be migrated from SQL server 2005 to SQL server 2008 R2 on a different machine.

The plan is basically to use the concept of mirroring and do the activity (This is cos at the later point of time same has to be implemented on production box which is having 500 Db's)

I have never configured mirroring too Sad.. Can any one please help how to begin with..
