use .bak to move database to another server
Posted on 2013-11-02
I used to do this a lot and for some reason it is not working this time.
I have sql server 2012 and I am trying to migrate a database to another machine not on my network. In previous version, I would have simply backed up the database and restored it on the new instance of sql. This does not seem to be working. What is the easiest way to complete this transaction?
