Unable to copy database from one SQL server to another

I am trying to perform a database detach / attach 'upgrade' of SharePoint 2010 Enterprise to SharePoint 2013 enterprise. I am following the instructions at https://4sysops.com/archives/upgrade-to-sharepoint-2013-from-sharepoint-2010-part-3-upgrade/

On the Select Databases screen, I don't have checkboxes beside ANY of the databases.

Both servers are on the same domain, both have the firewall disabled, the SQL Server and Agent accounts all log on with a domain admin account.

I'm stumped. I can't get beyond this stage.

You can do this manually from the command line by detaching it on the old server, copying the files to the new server, and then attaching them to the new server.

Yes, I was just expecting that there would be something else done to the DB during the copy?

It looks like you would need to manually "upgrade" the database.

Do you have the necessary permissions to perform the desired task?
Chris MillardAuthor Commented:
Thanks. I'm not sure why the 'proper' way isn't working. I didn't use the command line, I simply detached the DB using SQL Management Studio, copied it and re-attached. Everything else went OK after that.
