How can we migrate our sql server 2000 to sql server 2005 on another box? We have about 36 databases and it is around 65 terabytes of data on an external array. The array will be connected to the new server.

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

All you need to do is detach the databases from the existing server, then attach them to the SQL Server 2005 instance. They will be upgraded automatically when they are attached.

    Would this also apply when going from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2008?
