I am attempting to make a copy of a database using the Copy Database Wizard in SQL Server 2005, but I am receiving the following error:

TITLE: Copy Database Wizard ------------------------------:

The action you attempted to perform on a remote SQL Server instance failed because the action requires a SQL Server component that is not installed on the remote computer. To proceed, install SQL Server 2005 Management Tools on the remote computer, and then try again. For more information, see "How to: Install SQL Server 2005 (Setup)" in SQL Server 2005 Books Online, or find the article on MSDN at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=57083

    I'd have to agree here. The next step is spelled out in the error message. "To proceed, install SQL Server 2005 Management Tools on the remote computer, and then try again."
