Hi Experts,
I am a system admin and I would like to migrate a 32 bit version of sql server 2008 standard to a 64 bit version (New Hardware) due to the sunsetting of existing hardware.  
What is the best way of doing this avoiding the pitfalls?

Thanks in advance

Hi what about all the jobs \ security settings etc.  Is it a matter of migrating all the components manually ?
Is there no migration tool?
