Hi,

I need to move our SQL server 2005 on windows 2003 to a new windows 2008 server. Could someone show me what should I do?

Thank you.

The databases can be restored to the new target; that's the easy part. The server level configuration takes more doing. Some of these items might not be applicable in your environment and there are probably others that I am not considering but here is a list to work against:

sp_Configure items - You may need to turn on 'show advanced options' to get a full list of these; Adjust your min/max memory settings as needed
Linked Servers
  Servers
  Options
  Logins
Server level triggers, if any
Security
  Logins
  Server Role Memeberships
  Server level permissions
  Credentials
Database Mail
  Accounts
  Profiles
  Profile-Accounts
  Principal-Profiles
  Email Configuration Parameters
Replication - Publisher? Subscriber? Distributor?
SQL Agent
  Schedules
  Categories
  Operators
  Proxies
  Jobs
  Job Server
  Job Steps
  Job Schedules
  Alerts
  Notifications
  Special: CPU Idle Condition
Databases - After the restore, you'll need to sync the Logins and the Database Users to get their SIDs aligned
