SQL Server Migration With dbatools

Garry Bargsley gives an example of how quickly you can migrate a SQL Server instance:

So in just 1 minute and 34 seconds you have migrated all of the following from one server to another.

  • All SP_Configure settings

  • Any Custom Error Messages

  • Any SQL Credentials

  • All Linked Servers

  • Database Mail along with Configuration and Profiles and Accounts

  • All user objects in System Databases

  • All Backup Devices

  • Any System Triggers

  • All User Databases

  • All Logins

  • Any Data collectors

  • Any Security Audits

  • All Endpoints, Policy Management, Resource Governor, Extended Events

  • And Finally All SQL Server Agent Jobs, Schedules, Operators, Alerts

These are probably very small databases (as it was a test instance), but dbatools is quite impressive.
