Heyas,

I will be involved in a migration event from our SQL servers our local office to a data centre and I have been asked to create a list of health checks. Other than creating lists of current user permissions and their associated databases, as well as the default schemas for each database (see query below), is there anything else other than database backups, I should be creating copies of.

DECLARE @command varchar(1000)
select @command = 'USE ?; select DB_NAME(), default_schema_name
, type_desc
, name
, create_date
from sys.database_principals
order by default_schema_name
, type_desc'
EXEC sp_MSforeachdb @command

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thank you.
