I was wondering if there was anyone out there who had been using SQL Server 2000, and upgraded it to SQL 2005/2008 during a tools upgrade? We are currently on tools 8.44 and performance is bogging down at times on SQL 2000. Curious to see if and what your experiences were? Also has anyone had any success data archiving with tools 8.44?
I have successfully done an upgrade from tools 8.44 to 8.49 (also sql server 2000 to 2005 sp3) in 2009
The performance was way better in 2005, also managing the database :).. also you wont hav to face the dreadful deadlock problem in 2005
I should say that this activity was part of an application+tools upgrade
