Hi All,

I hope this is the appropiate forum for the following question (if not Please let me know which forum would be best suited):

I need to write a document (or road map) with all the possible scenarios to move databases from older versions (primarily v2000, but later on other none v2008 R2) to SQL Server 2008 R2.

So I wonder (and could use) any links, docs., etc... that can help me cover most of the scenarios possible in the 'real world'

Thanks in advance for any replies!!

Thanks Jack!
Your info will definitely help a bit more down the line of this project, however the immediate migration/move is from SQL 2000 since we are trying to get rid of all these SQL Server versions directly to 2008 R2 (of course there might be exceptions per application)

Sure I will see if any scenarios from the Microsoft doc. applies to v2000; As to particular scenarios, I haven't reach that point/phase yet, the BAs (business Analysts are still trying to gather the data from the Application/Support managers)

Thanks again :)
