Upgrade from 2005 to 2008 installed on a different server
i.a.w. the DB Installation and Upgrade Guide for 2005 it was possible to basically detach a 2000 database and attach it to a freshly installed 2005 on a different server. Then run some magic tools - and done. I was looking for the same feature for 2008 now. We want to move from 2005 on Server 2003 directly to a new 2008/2008 machine.
It should work, but SAP doesn't seem to support it, or am I misinterpreting the guide? Just asking if anyone here has done it or thought about it, I will contact my colleagues in the lab otherwise...
