SQL Server database backup and restore in different servers using DTS

SQL Server database backup and restore in a different server using DTS is explained by expert Greg Robidoux.

I need to restore a database in a different server than it was backed up in. I need to do this three times each day, so I made a DTS package. When I try to restore, the destination server fails because the database is not the same in the source server. How can I back up and restore a database in different servers using DTS?
You will need to specify the MOVE option with the RESTORE DATABASE command. Take a look at the tip Restoring a database from another SQL Server, to get further information on restoring the database as well as linking users and logins.
