    Unanswered: sql server 2005 won't perform

    I had my IT dept. install sql server 2005 enterprise edition on a new windows server 2003. All other machines are running sql 2000 server on windows server 2000. I am a sa and local admin on all servers. I tried performing copy database, backup and restore and detach and attach to upgrade the sql server 2000 databases to 2005 and all fail. I followed all steps. I was imformed that IT installed sp2 for sql server 2005. It's like the servers dont talk to each other. Their all on the company's domain. I am wondering if something happen with the install but the IT dept. insist that everything went fine. It's strange that I can't perform a simple backup and restore it on the new server buy when I click on restore it doesn't let me browse to get the backup file on the 2000 server. I never had a problem in Sql 2000 with backup. Can it be the installation was corrupted somehow. It seems fine. I haven't created any new databases because I wanted to move the databases from sql 2000. Can anyone help me get a clue of what the problem is please?

    i bet your the sql server service and the sql agent service are under the local system account instead of a domain user account that has access to the other machines.

    ... or maybe double hop.

    In any event I would copy the backup to the destination server and restore from the local file. Any blip in the network could crash your restore operation if you restore from a remote file.
