I have done SQL server upgrades using backup/restore and detach/attach.
I have a 150+GB database need to be upgraded to 2008 + latest patches within 15 mins downtime.
What options are available?
Can I use mirroring to replicate database at another node from 2005 to 2008 and at given point carry switchover?
