I don't know actually
my project manager said there is a way to connect to sql 2k using sql7 EM our previous DBA used to connect .
But as far as I know, every time sql dmo when connecting, checks for the verison and so doesn't allow to connect, so I don't know about any workarounds, so was just checking out with u guys if there really exists any workaround.
I think my guess is wrong
As per the holy book :
In SQL Server 2000, the master database has a compatibility level of 80, which cannot be modified. A database containing an indexed view cannot be changed to a compatibility level lower than 80.
So I dont think that can be done ....
Unless Brett differs ;D
