We are trying to upgrade from SQL Server v7.0 to SQL Server 2000. Here's our set up,
Current Server: Win NT, SQL Server v7.0
New Server : Win 2000, SQL Server 2000
Client (my PC): Win XP, SQL Server 2000
The New Server is designated SQL Server machine -- company-wide. That is, all the apps/projects uses this machine as the SQL Server. It only has one instance of SQL Server running.
Different project are assigned a dedicated 'Drive' (logical only) and allocated certain disk size as the work space. We (my team) will be the new entry for this server.
Q: When doing the Copy Wizard (from my PC) to upgrade/copy the existing v7.0 db (from Current Server) to New SQL Server 2000, do I need to specify the physicall '\Data\' folder? Or, can I copy the database to the selected path -- which is my dedicated drive?
