I have a server running sql 7.0 and I need to move the msdb database to another server running sql 2005. When I try to restore the db from a backup I'm getting a compatability error message. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You won’t be able to restore a system database over a system database of a different version of SQL server. You’ll need to restore the database to a different name, then move the data into the tables you need to move it in to in the MSDB database.

I assume that you are trying to move the jobs over? The DTS packages won’t move over as the DTS package format changed from SQL 7 to SQL 2000.
