Running Copy Database from SQL Management Studio fails

Hi experts,

Can someone let me know what the permissions should be for the login that's being used to carry-out a Copy Database command from a remote Management Studio?  

I keep getting a failure in the final stage of the process and the error in the event log that looks most important is:

"Message: Could not read metadata, possibly due to insufficient access rights."

Any clues or guidance would be most appreciated?

are you using attach detach method or the other method?

Make a backup and restore it to new db. Maybe you'll have enough access rights for that.

to momi_sabag... I'm using the SQL object manager method as the attach/detach option is greyed-out for me.
