Database uplevel Restores Follow On

Today's post is a follow on from one earlier this month Database uplevel Restores.  I got round to testing restoring a SQL Server 2000 backup to a SQL Server 2008 R2 server and it worked!  Details Below;

-- Restore command
RESTORE DATABASE [SQL2000Test] FROM DISK = 'D:\SQL2000TestBackup.bak'
WITH REPLACE, MOVE 'SQL2000Test_Data' TO 'D:\Test\SQL2000Test_Data.mdf',
MOVE 'SQL2000Test_Log' TO 'D:\Test\SQL2000Test_Log.ldf';

Message Output;
