I've been tasked to move our production databases on MSSQL 2000 to 2005. I've supported MSSQL since version 6.5 and performed migrations to successor versions.
Current Environment is MSSQL 2000 32-bit with current Service Packs.
I've performed mock migrations on Test servers upgrading all Production instances simultaneously from MSSQL 2000 to 2005 32-bit. The Test environment is identical to Production minus server name, IP etc. Also I have a separate server with MSSQL 2005 installed where I use the DETACH / ATTACH and BACKUP / RESTORE method for migration / acceptance testing. There are approximately 30 databases totaling 70 GB. This has gone as expected and fairly successful. Vendors have been coordinated with to update code and staff for acceptance testing.
I'd prefer going directly to MSSQL 2005 64-bit instead if possible due to memory benefits etc. This is where I'd like some feedback prior to borrowing a 64-bit server for testing.
1. Is it better to migrate from MSSQL 2000 32-bit to 2005 64-bit via:
a. DETACH / ATTACH
b. BACKUP / RESTORE
c. Is one method more advantageous relating to the end result?
2. Regarding XP clients, have issues been experienced with the default SQL Server driver or is an alternate recommended for XP clients to connect to a MSSQL 64-bit server databases?
3. If you have performed this migration and have relevant experience please pass them along.
Does enabling/disabling Data Execution Prevention have a performanceimpact on SQL 2000 or SQL 2005?For SQL best performance - how should I configure for:Processor Scheduling:Programs or Background servicesMemory Usage:Programs or System Cache
I am a bit new to the MSSQL server. In our application, we use so many SQL queries. To imporve the performance, we used the Database enigine Tuning tool to create the indexes. The older version of the application supports MSSQL 2000 also. To re-create these new indexes, I have an issue in running these "CREATE INDEX" commands as the statements generated for index creation are done in MSSQL 2005. The statements include "INCLUDES" keyword which is supported in MSSQL 2005 but not in MSSQL 2000.
CREATE INDEX IND_001_PPM_PA ON PPM_PROCESS_ACTIVITY
i was planning to create a database migration tool .. its a certain database of a DMS (document management system) to another DMS (two different DMS)... from DMS using msde 2000 server .. and tranfer to a DMS using a postgre sql or mssql .. depends ..
they have different table structures and names . . :D
i was thing of what language shall i use.. or what language is the best to work on this kind of project :)
Ben writes "I have a sql script that doesn't function very well when it's executed on a SQL 2000 server.
The scrpt looks like this:

I need to be converted to a script that can be executed on both MSSQL 2000 and MSSQL 2005.
I was wondering if somebody there could help me with this problem?!
I am doing my final semester project. It is a migration tool that converts the DB2 PL dialect into MSSQL Server's T-SQL dialect. I am in need of sample DB2 PL files(procedures, UDFs, triggers) for testing the tool. Please point out me to some DB2 files repository links or if you have some files, please give me the same. I will use this only for testing purposes.

DB is developed on local computer with MSSQL 2005 Express. My host is on MSSQL 2005 workgroup. Are they compatible, because I am getting errors? Is my approach wrong?
I have tried several approaches.
A) I created a backup of database on my local, then placed a copy on the server. Then I tried to restore through Server Management Studio. I get this error.
TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio
An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)
The backed-up database has on-disk structure version 611. The server supports version 539 and cannot restore or upgrade this database.
RESTORE FILELIST is terminating abnormally. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 3169)

B: I also have tried copying the database. I put it in the same path as the other databases that can be read with server management studio on the server. Then, tried to get to it through server managements studio and it did not appear. So I tried to attach it. Then I received this error:

C: I have also tried opening the Database, and back up file through Server Management Studio. without success.
D: I also tried Windows and Software update at microsoft update, but no updates were recommended for Version on Server.
I'm surprised this is so hard. My original data base was created in same family of software. 2005 MS SQL Express. I could use some direct help from someone experienced with this. Am I doing it wrong or are the DB versions incompatible.
I have installed MSSQL 2005 on my D: drive of my windows 2003 server, but now need to install MSSQL version 2000 b/c I realized I have one less license than I thought I had. I have build no databases, only the default information. Can I install another instance (being the 2000 instance) on the same drive? If I can't, can I install it on the Crive without a lot of issues???? Or would it be easier to remove 2005 and just start from scratch? The sql version is 9.0. Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated.!!!!!
Hello, I think now MS SQL 2005 support packaging database object into schemas which may be granted access by any of the db users, while SQL 2000 only we could use the database creator user instead of schema. my case is i am working in a system with more than one module, e.g. HR + TaskManagemt. Both HR and TaskManagement objects are in the same database, and there are some common objects. I want to isolate the HR objects from the TaskManagemt objects, so i can package any module separated from the other, suppose i want to buy only the HR module, so that i want only to exctract the HR Object + the common objects but not the TaskManagement objects. So how can i accomplish such operations using SQL 2005 schemas AND using SQL 2000 users. P.S. i have two servers one with 2000 and the other with 2005, so i want to find solutions for both 2000 and 2005 Thanks in advance
I'm running 2000 databases in a 2005 server. Can anyone tell me if there are adverse effects in doing this? As I understand it, the 2005 performance benefits are available to databases running as 2000(Ver80) But some of the new futures may not be available.. And any documentation from Microsoft/white papapers regarding this subjects are appreciated..
Hi allI am looking for the best method to automate a website's database management. Lets say I have a user registration database and the users register. This sends an automated email to the user with a link to activate the users registration. If the user does not register within 24 hours, his registration must be automatically deleted from the database using a stored procedure.I know how to do this using the global.aspx file, however there must be an alternative way of doing this, especially if the database is an SQL database. I do not know how much MSSQL server access is given to a developer by an as ISP who hosts the website.Can anyone tell me what would be the best method to use.ThxWarren

I am now trying to configure Log Shipping in my compeny but I have encountered some difficulties. The destination site and the source site are far from each other and the transaction logs are too big, this situation causes an huge overload on our private network (we use WAN which is complitly disconnected from the internet). Is there any way to compress the transacion logs with zip or rar and combine it in the log shipping mechanizem?
Is there another way for making this files smaller?
