moving from sql 2000 to 2008 - any advices?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 
hi, well, as the title goes, we have to move from sql 2000 to 2008 quickly. We were going to do it some time in the future, we were already replicating the database to make some tests but our sql 2000 has a hardware problem so we have to do it as fast as we can. We are planning to detach and atach the database on sql 2008. My question is for you all that already went through all this, do you have any advices or good practices to do once we atach our DB? could we have any issue (not query errors, but data problems) if after ataching the database we set compatibility level to 100? well any advice is really welcome. Thanks!

Oracle Linked serve Query performance in 2000 vs 2008 R2 64 Bit

  
Hi everyone We have started to migrate one of our reporting systems from Sql 2000 to Sql 2008 R2.  One of the steps has been to test the perforance of certain Oracle linked server queries between each server.  We are finding on average 3 fold better perforance stats (in terms of query completion time) on the old server.  This should obviously not be the case.  The new server has signifantly more CPU/Memory/IO resources to play with, and it is 64 bit (not to mention its new!).  Here's what I got so far: Old server: SQL 2000 on W2000 both fully patched.  Old Dell Dual core with 3 GB of Ram running on two soft IDE Mirrored drives (yes I know... it sucks).  It connecting via the MS OLE DB provider for Oracle (9i client) New server: ESX VMware Server with 2 CPU's assigned, 8 GB of ram connected to large HP SAN.  CPU, ram and IO's have all been ruled out as the problem.  We've tried varying network cards with different results so we havent ruled that out yet.  Its connecting via the Oracle provider for OLE DB (11G 64 bit client) The linked server is an Oracle 9i fully patched server.  All three are on the same network backbone. Running a simple select * query on both servers returns the same number of rows (~76 000) .  It takes ~1:20 on the new server and ~0:20 on the old server. In looking at the wait stati

SQL Server 2008 Powershel trying to access SQL Server 2000

Now, if I try the same thing for a Sql Server 2000 instance on another server (Windows 2003 R2 with SP1) with no SQL Server 2005 or higher installed on the machine, I get the error below: PS SQLSERVER:\> cd sql PS SQLSERVER:\sql> cd MyPureSS2KMachine WARNING: Could not obtain SQL Server Service information.

Moving a Copy of SQL Report Server 2005 and Upgrade to 2008

  
Hello, We have SQL 2005 Report Server in a Windows 2003 64 bit server box. We want to create a copy of this report server database somewhere in the domain, so that we can access it for a different purpose. My question is, will there be any complications with this? I'm thinking about the encryption key that's needed to access the database. If we are successful with this, we might also want to upgrade to SQL 2008. Thanks for your help,   Elizabeth K.

Monitoring and moving SharePoint foundation 2010 database on SBS 2008

  

I have successfully followed the white paper for upgrading SharePoint Services 3.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010. Other than an authentication link problem all went smoothly.

I do have two small problems. The Small Business Server console reports that SharePoint is not functioning (it is functioning as I can connect to the site), this is more a nussance as my daily reports are inaccurate and I hope if this is normal there is or will be a hotfix to repair the reporting. This also comes to the second more serious problem.

In upgrading the process moved the database from it's own drive back to the system drive. I should have payed more attention to the directories in the upgrade process. Live and learn. Since the reporting is wrong in the console the move database wizard also does not work. Knowing that SBS gets cranky when things aren't done with a wizard or in a super specific order, is there a proper way to move the database? I am beging to get the long list of warnings as the drive fills up.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

 

Erik
