Hello,

I'm running SQL 08R2 on both of my servers and would like to upgrade them to 2012.  I saw there in an upgrade wizard built into 2012.  Do I simply just run that, it will check for any issues, and then let upgrade if no issues are found?

Thanks,

you need to run the upgrade advisor first, if no issues found, you need to back up all the dbs, script jobs users etc. then run the upgrade wizard

Hello,

I know how to backup the databases, but how do you backup the script jobs, users etc?  Sorry, I'm not a DB admin so I don't understand how to do all of that.

you can script the jobs from enterprise manager. I totally suggest you to hire some dba to do the upgradation. it may take 5-8 hrs of work, but definitely worth it

You could do a side by side installation and then migrate the jobs across using SSIS. This will also provide you with a roll back plan should anything go badly wrong.
