I need to move a SQL database to a second SQL server. Both servers are under utilized and I would like to consolidate them. There is only one db on Server A and 3 db’s on server B, so obviously, I’m looking to move the db on Server A to Server B. I would like to provide minimal downtime and I’m not sure if there is a way to do that by mirroring or just simply backing up the db and moving it over to Server B. I would also like to make it as transparent as possible to the users. Your advise is greatly appreciated.
