If you are trying to move the database 'People' from server a to server b do this:

On server B create a Database called People through enterprise manager then Backup the database.
Take the MDF and LDF files from server A and place them on Server B and now go and restore the database using the MDF and LDF files from server A and viola, the database will be the same across both servers. (The only thing you will have to make sure is that the Physical Path of the LDF and MDF files are correct)

Create a DTS package, though I have had bad luck with trying to copy Databases between servers using DTS process's.

thx for ur reply...

    I think In DTS Pkg's, there is no stand-by server property....

If source server was updated, the destination won't update till DTS pkg run.....

    thats y i am asking about any stand-by server mechanisms...


thanks...

I don't know what you mean by "stand-by" server but what you are talking is replication, plain and simple.
