    Unanswered: Install SQL 2000 client on SQL 2005 server

    I'm trying to remember how to install the SQL 2000 client tools onto a SQL 2005 server. There are a couple of bizarre steps that will allow this to happen, but I can't for the life of me remember what comes after the unicycle down the stairs with the umbrella stand of machetes.

    Can anybody remember the magic, or do I resort to using VPC to kludge the install until I can find my clay tablets again?

    I believe you have to install 2000 first... And SP 4.something for 2005 is needed too



    ...but don't hold me to that

    If anybody else is working on this, you can stop. I found the notes and the next step after the unicycle involves a sledge hammer and a scuba tank... I didn't read any further than that. I decided to just rebuild the box, that only takes time with little if any personal risk!

    Can I ask why you wanted to install the SQL 2000 client tools?

    Sure, you can ask, but I'd bet that you'd rather not know... I wanted the SQL 2000 client tools to manage other servers with SQL Servers older than SQL 2000 (i.e. SQL 7.0). Our client has some rather old servers that help keep life interesting, and the business units aren't explicitly charged for the cost of supporting those servers!

    Mmmm, fun. Yeah, I have an Oracle 8.0.6 box that clings to life on an NT 4.0 server. I can't wait for the day that it gives up the ghost.

    My condolences...
