Hi,

I hate to sound like a newbie on 2005 but I have to admit that I am usually using Enterprise Manager on SQL Server 2000 to get all my work done. Now with SQL Server 2005, Microsoft has introduced another level of complexity and I want to make sure I install the right tools for the jobs I do.

I need to:

Manage legacy DTS packages (from another post I was told I would need SQL Server 2000 DTS Designer)
Will need to re-engineer these DTS packages in the future to SSIS
Need to manage SQL Server Agent Jobs
Need to sometimes add or edit stored procedures to databases as well as user logins etc...

Any advice from the community would be of help in terms of what extra software would be needed to manage these areas in replacement of Enterprise Manager.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Bret

Installing SQL Server 2005 will also install SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS), the replacement for Enterprise Manager. You'll also have the option to install SSIS when installing SQL 2005. You'll need this for working with SSIS packages.

SSMS can be used for everything you've listed. The DTS Designer components are available as a free download: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=df0ba5aa-b4bd-4705-aa0a-b477ba72a9cb&DisplayLang=en.
