    Unanswered: NT4.0 Upgrade to WINK 2K

    Anyone notice any impact to their SQL2K Boxes when they had to upgrade the OS?

    I would say that you'd be much safer to migrate to new boxes running Win2K or Win2K3 than trying to upgrade WinNT machines... seen too many people have problems, machines and environments are too different to reliably predict how it's going to go, just because it worked for one person doesn't mean it will work in your case.

    I wouldn't upgrade the OS, but that's just my two cents

    I had a SQL 7.0 machine go from WinNT to Win2K. Not pretty. But it was all driver issues, and the NT guys worked it out after a while. May as well check what you got on that HCL. SQL 7.0 came through with no problems, but it is not a system we would notice performance problems on. Good luck.
