Backup and restore the database.

Are you moving from the same SQL version to another or from older to newer or newer to older?

in sql server enterprise manager, you can select the database, then in the tools menu you can backup the database.
in the new environment you can create the same login and restore the database.
then you have to let your clients connect to the new server. that's all.
