Good morning,

I have seen quite a few articles on the web on moving login/users from one flavor of sql server to another but don't really see one for 2008.  
If you happened to have scripts or directions then will be greatly appreciated.
thx

If you restore the database from a backup on the new server, users should move with the DB.

If, after doing the restore, you have orphaned users (link from user back to login is broken) you can do this to fix them:
