Hi all,
We are moving the SCCM database to SQL server 2008. The SCCM database is now on SQL server 2005. Could you please give me some sources or ideas how to do that?
Thank you

so you have the old server running SQL 2005 and the new server running SQL 2008.
the easy way to move database from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008 using :
1-Detaching the Database
2- Copy the DATA / LOG Files
3- Attaching the Database

Hi TarekIsmail,
When I tried to this step:

Select Modify SQL Server configuration on the Configuration Manager Setup Wizard Site Maintenance page.

I entered  the SQL server name and instance but I got this error msg
"Could not connect or execute SQL query".
 I verified the SQL and instance name. They are correct. Do you why?
Thank you
