Hi Folks,

Can any one provide me a checklist to validate while doing the database migration from one physical SQL Server to another SQL Server.

It will be very useful for me.

Thanks in Advance....

Added a checklist which we followed during migration.
Migrtion Pre checklist
1 OS & Service pack of both the Server
2 RAM & CPU detail
3 Analyse the disk space in the Target Server
4 Physical layout of Data files, Log files, TempDB data file , Index and Backup files
5 Collect information on Indexes( Cluster & Non Clustered)
6 Collect the information about the Database properties(auto close, auto growth, Auto Stats, Recovery Model & compatibility level etc)
7 Collect the information of dependent applications
8 Colect information about the Application down time
9 Colect information on Database logins , users and their permissions
10 Collect the information and script Jobs
11 Collect information for any Linked Servers
12 Collect the information on any High availabilty setup ( Log Shipping, Replication or Cluster)
13 Check number of Records in each tables
14 Stop the alpplication
15 Put the DB in Read only / Single user mode and take the Backup

Migrtion Post checklist
1 Restore the Backups to New or Target server
2 Execute DBCC UPDATEUSAGE on the restored database
3 Change the compatibility level if DB migration is between the Lower to Higher version, the compatibility level should be of higher version
4 Check the Database Propeties
5 Rebuild the indexes and update the DB Statistics
6 Fix the Logins & User Permissions
7 Fix the Jobs & alerts
8 Check the number of records in each tables
9 Check if the application is able to connect
10 Check the SQL Server error log if Target Server for any login failed error
