I am at a lost right now. Microsoft says the only upgrade path for the developer edition of sql 2000 is to sql 2008 developer edition. Is there any way I can upgrade my database to sql 2008 enterprise, sql 2005 standard or even sql 2008 enterprise?
Basically my sql database is for MS Sharepoint 2003 server. Since we are upgrading to MS sharepoint 2007 for testing, I want to update the database to non developer edition, it would be easier for me to upgrade the database during the install of Sharepoint 2007.
Here's what I have done:
Backed up the sql 2000 dev database that I used for sharepoint 2003 On new server with sql 2008 enterprise, I tried to restore the database but it wouldnt take it.
I even tried an in place upgrade of the sql 2000 / sharepoint server to sharepoint 2007 and sql 2008 and it wouldnt take it. States that the upgrade path is not supported.
If you guys can give me some pointers it will be great.
