Quite often I get the request regarding how to copy all the objects – including schema and data from any database and re-create it on another instance.
SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 has script generator wizard which does it for us. I ask you to pay special attention to image #5.
After the script is generated, the next challenge often users face is how to execute this large script as SQL Server Management Studio does not open the file. One can use SQLCMD for the same. See that in the last image of this post.
Pay attention to the option Types of data to script – select option ‘Schema and data’
As the file with data will be very large, use SQLCMD to execute the large script which will create database with schema & data.
Please let me know if you have any question or suggestion on this blog post.
