epo db backup and restore


i am not much familar with sql, please guide me the syntax to backup sql and restore.

I am planning to migrate ePO4.5 on windows server 2003 x86, SQL 2005 to a VM  on windows server 2008 x64 R2 and SQL 2008 R2 and go with ePO4.6

I tried to backup sql using OSQL command but it is giving me errors.

My Physical machine hostname is AVS, Database name : EPODB

  osql -E -S ePO4_AVS\EPODB -n -Q "BACKUP DATABASE  [EPODB] TO DISK = 'C:\backup.bak' WITH INIT,SKIP" (please correct this syntax)

and also please guide me the syntax to restore.

The new VM will also have the same old hostname and the same DB name and i want to export the database on SQL 2008 R2


'c:\SQL\data\ePO4_AVS.mdf' , MOVE 'ePO4_AVS_log' TO 'c:\SQL\data\ePO4_AVS.ldf'" (correct the syntax please)

Also follow, KB66616 for upgrade to a new machine when system types are different, its really important that you are transferring ePo from x86 to x64, so you must be carefull and follow exactly according to KB.
