URGENT - Steps needed before Decomissioning of a server

Hi Everybody,

Currently we have Portal applications running on SQL 2000.We are going to decomission the servers,but before that we want to take a final Database backup for future restore.Is the Database restore possible with the ' Full Database' backup taken by SQL Enterprise Manager while the database is online ?

Please suggest.

Thanks,

    Hi,

    The full database backup works only for data stored in tables. If You want to migrate all data You must remember to configure SQL logins, users, database and object owners and permissions.

    Regards,

    Marcin
