We have a new SQL STANDARD SERVER 2008 R2 x64, and an existing SQL STandard Server 2008 R2 x32. I want to migrate the database from the old x32 bit to the new x64 bit machine. Has anyone got any information regarding this, or resource to research read up on. Thank you



Software/Hardware used:
SQL STANDARD SERVER 2008 x64bit

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

All you need to do is detach the database from the old server and attach it to the new server. You can also backup the database and restore it to the new server. As far as the database is considered it doesn’t care if it’s on a 32bit or 64bit system.
