How do I transfer encrypted stored procedures in a DB? I am using DTS wizard method with SQL 2000 on two servers. I copied all objects of the DB to the new destination second server but the database will not run on the new server because 3 stored procedures are encrypted. The error encountered refers to SQL not being able to generate scripts for the objects because they are encrypted. How do I go about this knowing that the first server has OS problems?
Is it possible for you to backup/restore the database instead of transferring it with DTS. The whole idea of having encrypted stored procedures is to avoid them being able to be read or scripted. Alternately, there are a number of third party tools around that will decrypt them for you.
