Hello, I move a database from a SQL server 2005 to a SQL Server 2008 by doing a backup and restore.
I would like to know if the indexes must be rebuild on the database in the SQL Server 2008 and if so how do I do this.

Thanks

also you can do it by de-attach database from sql 2005 and re-attach the database in sql 2008 it is fater if you have huge databases. but make bake to be on the safe side

No, indexes are in the backup. So after restore you'll retain indexes at the same state.
For reindexing you have DBCC DBREINDEX
