I have windows 2008 server and Mssql server express 10.50.2500 runing fine. Now I have to change the server.
The other server is windows 2008 server too, but another name and domain. I installed the same MSSQL express I had on the old server.
I did backup on the old server, but I´m not able to do the restore on the new server. I´m getting "restore failed for the server ""NEWSERVER\DATABASE"" ...." what I´m doing wrong ?
