Copy Database Wizard (Select a Destination Server)
Use this page to specify the server where the database will be moved or copied. After you select the authentication method and enter user information, click Next to establish the connection to the destination server and to validate server and user information.
|If you set the source and destination servers to the same server instance, you will make a copy of a database on the source server.|
To use the Copy Database Wizard, you must establish a connection to both the source and destination servers by using a login that is a member of the sysadmin fixed server role. The destination server must be an instance of SQL Server 2005.
