Multiple databases migration assess using DMA

중석 김 1 Reputation point

Hi There,

As titled, is there any way to assess multiple databases when migration from sql 2008 to sql 2019?
The purpose of assess is to evaluate the suitability of migrating multiple databases to 2019 at the same time, with objects such as stored procedures.

Is is possible way to do using DMA or any other tool available?

Thank you in advance

    Hi Siyang,
    Thank you for your reply, but it's not the answer I want.

    What I want to ask is that when evaluating with DMA, I wonder if there is a result of whether it is possible to migrate the databases as they are, with multiple databases referencing each other.

    Hi @중석 김 ,

    the migration workflow of DMA can help you to migratie the following components:
    Schema of database(such as tables,views,stored procedures etc.)
    Data and users
    Server roles
    SQL Server and Windows logins
    so, you can use DMA migration:

    like Views and Stored Produres, you also can choose other ways to migrate (unfortunately, there is no built-in way to do this with the command line):
    use SSMS and login in
    right click on database and go to Tasks-> Generate Scripts
    click Next, and you can change Script entire database and all database objects to Select specific database objects

    click Next, notice the File option
    when finishing, select file you choose and copy it to the destination server
    go to the destination server, open SSMS and login in
    Go to File > Open > File or use the keyboard shortcut CTRL+O to open the SQL script. Select the file you choose
    You will see the script generated from the source server containing all views and stored procedures. Click Execute or use the keyboard shortcut F5 and run the script.
