    Unanswered: SQL Server 65. Run on WIN2K Server

    Yeah, Yeah, I know...

    But I was asked, and have no idea (and hope I never have to have any experience)

    I was hoping my 6.5 days were Loooooooooooong behind me....guess not

    I'm working on explaining that an upgrade is a better solution....

    Anyone have any war stories?

    Is it possible (please say no)

    I've done it before when trying to migrate from an NT/6.5 box to a Win2K/MSSQL2K box... My master db was corrupt and the Upgrade wizard hung forever, I ended up just pulling the logins out with a script, installing 6.5 on the new machine and restoring, once I had everything back where it should be as far as rights and stuff I did the upgrade. I prbably could have just reuilt master on the source machine too, but didn't feel like it.

    make sure you bring it to at least sp5a... If I remember correctly you will get some kind of funky error message about it during the initial install too, just read it and ignore...

    I've had customers run 6.5 on Win2K several times without issues except me wanting to beat them over the head for doing it as most of them had the impression that they were saving money by not upgrading, even though the productivity loss due to staying on 6.5 was actually costing them more...

    was that disconnected and rambling enough for you? *heh*
