I am looking for assistance on how to back up a SQL Server 2008r2 and restoring it on another server.

We have 2 Virtual machines
I want to capture the entire SQL Server including some SSIS deployed packages and restore these on another server. I tried backing up individual databases but some return a message indicating that it was unable because it was a different instance.

We are using Windows server 2008 with SQL Server 2008 r2 on both VMs
Is there a way to transfer all the dbs and restore them on another Server?
