We have a VC 2.5 stored on a SQL 200 server that needs to be moved to a new SQL 2008 server.
Can anyone tell me how to update Viryual Center to the new server once the data is moved, or even better, a recommended process for doing so.

Thanks,

If I understand correctly you are running under Server 2000. The Microsoft way would be to update the OS to 2003 and in a second step to 2008.

If you ask me, I would:
- do a complete backup of the DB
- install a new VC running Server 2008
- install SQL server, make sure identical setup (connectivity methods and authentication mode)
- restore the DB
- as a fallback position/ and to check for settings details keep the old VC image around for one week after the update

The link provided links to other docs. All that was really required was for the System DSN to be modified to suit following the SQL data copy.
