could you please clarify:

<how can we migrate everything in the configuration manager to SQL server 2008 R2?
>

normally, you need to set all configuration setting manually : such as startup account

if you use not default ports;

but if your setup is default - and you did not use anything but default -- you do not need do anything-- all will be default

SQL Server Configuration Manager is a tool to manage the services associated with SQL Server, to configure the network protocols used by SQL Server, and to manage the network connectivity configuration from SQL Server client computers. SQL Server Configuration Manager is a Microsoft Management Console snap-in that is available from the Start menu, or can be added to any other Microsoft Management Console display. Microsoft Management Console (mmc.exe) uses the SQLServerManager10.msc file in the Windows System32 folder to open SQL Server Configuration Manager.

so you mean everything in SQL configuration manager has to create manually, like Alias, on the new server's configuration manager?

how about link server? how can we carry the password of that link server item to the new server?

Oops... answered in the other thread, not this one.

Configuration manager - well yes pretty much all by hand. You can check some of the configuration options (like advanced featers) using sp_configure, but, essentially reagrd this as a new step and a new job on the new server.

As for linked server, it depends on how you set up that linked server.

If all on the same domain, then easy enough to simply use your windows login.

If on a totally seperate machine, then you have a few additional challenges with security first at the network level (you need the two machine to be able to see each other), and then the SQL login.

When setting up the linked server you can provide either the local (external) alternate user and password, or, the remote user and password. If the current setup uses the remote user and password, then yes, you would continue to use that.

The biztalk document "how to" actually describes it pretty well for SQL Server ( and while it says biztalk, dont worry, it is pure SQL Server that they are talking about) : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-au/library/aa560998(v=bts.10).aspx

I can recreate the alias myself, but it means that I can simply script the link server out and it should not ask the password again ?

Correct.

If you set up the linked server with correct user and passwords then it is remembered next time SQL Server is restarted and will attempt to connect again using the credentials it knows.
