move db to sql 2005

I am tasked to move a database from sql 2000 to sql 2005. Though my research suggests that I can backup a sql 2000 db from enterprise manager and restore it with sql 2005 management studio. what about logins? how do you transfer those?

Yes … u can use BACKUP/Restore Method to transfer/migrate dbs from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005. To transfer login refer After restoration in 2005… Update Statistics and run DBCC DBReindex … Madhu

yes, backup and restore would be the safest option. How about running a script for users. when you can restoring a db from sql 2000 to sql server 2005, schema will be created by tthe users names. for example, if you have a userA, there will be a schema called userA which will be owned by userA, In case you need to drop the userA, you have to drop the relevent schema as well. —————————————-
