I am trying to restore SQL 2000 DB into SQL 2005 Database.
I backup the database from SQL 2000.
From Management Suit, I try to restore database but I can not see network drive from there even though SQL serveris running under network account.
I could see network drive from SQL 2000 or at least I can type path to find backup file. However I can not do this..
My Q is:
1. How can I restore this SQL 2000 db to SQL 2005 using network path?
2. Since backup is SQL 2000 database, when I restore into SQL 2005, does restore upgrade system tables and other schema to SQL 2005 as well?
If not, what is the best practice to upgrade this database into SQL 2005?
Upgrading SQL 2000 current server to SQL 2005 is not an option at this point.
Eventually porduction server will be scrup and install SQL 2005 and then restore DBs into production machine...
Thx in advance
