Move Backup Exec Database from SQL Server Express 2005 to another server with SQL 2008.

I currently have a Win2K3 server with Backup Exec Ver 12.5 installed. When I originally installed BU Exec, I used the default SQL install that comes with the installation to house the main database.

What I want to do is transfer the database to another server that has a full SQL 2008 server installed. I obviously want all the data to be transferred across.

What is the best way to accomplish this?

You are trying to Migrate SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 and hence the below steps using Mirroring are applicable.

http://www.mssqltips.com/tip.asp?tip=1936

If the application is not critical or downtime is available, then you can do the steps below:

1. Build & Configure your new SQL server 2008.
2. Bring your SQL Server 2005 Down and close it for applications.
3. Take a full backup of all user databases.
4. Take a Script backup of all your Agent Jobs, Maintenance Plans and Linked Servers if any.
5. Take a backup of your Logins using the script given below:

6. Restore your User databases in SQL Server 2008 machine.
7. Restore Agent jobs, Maintenance Plans.
8. Restore Logins script in the destination instance.
9. Change Compatibility Level of all databases to 100.

beutiltity mentioned by MichaelVH would suffice..
Do make sure you are copying the required logins to new instance if not taken care by beutility..
