For migration of Microsoft SQL Server x86 to a Virtuozzo Virtual server on x64 a native application-specific platform migration method is used:

The process is referred by Microsoft as ‘transition’:

Stage 1. MS SQL Server (x64) is installed into a new VE on Virtuozzo x64 Server alongside the physical SQL Server (x86).

Stage 2. Databases are detached from the instance on Physical and are moved to an instance running on Virtual using MS SQL detach method.

Stage 3. Databases are attached to the destination instance running in the VE, after what physical SQL Server may be shut down.
