We have 5 databses (master and 4 user DB's) that need to be Upgraded from SQL Server 6.5 to 2005.
Is there a Standard procedure one can prescribe for the Process.

I did look at it.
I was wondering if I could get something Solid to rely on.
If there was anyone who succesfully completed the Migration.

Thanks

It depends on your own environment. At least, here are some links may help to start with. You need to work out your own plan.

Yes, 6.5 can be successfully migrated to SQL2000. That is why there is no much 6.5 left, plus MS does not support it for many years already.

I tried to follow the steps.
And was able to Upgrade the SQL6.5 to SQL2000.

I'm having issues with logins, that need to be migrated from the 6.5 to 2000.

1.As there is not a Sp_help_revlogin script, for login trasfer between 6.5 to 2000. I'm not able to migrate the logins.

2.Since, I have been able to Upgrade the DB's succesfully. I went ahead with the next step, to migrate it over to SQL2005.

I took the 2000 Backup and tried it on to 2005. It restored ok, but after restore, the DB comes with a message ( Pubs( SQL 6.5 Compatible)) and
the Database is completely unavailable. I cant do anything on it.
i.e: when I right click on the DB the options are greyed out.
And there is no expand(+) option.

Is there a reason for this?

First I have to admit that I’m shooting in the dark because I haven’t seen SQL Server 6.5 for many years. After you upgrade the server to SQL Server 2000 make sure that your database’s compatibility level is set for SQL Server 2000. You can use the GUI or sp_dbcmptlevel. Only after you modify the compatibility level to SQL Server 2000, backup the database and then try to restore it to SQL Server 2005,

If you made the jump to 2005 ok you should be able to use:

ALTER DATABASE database_name
SET COMPATIBILITY_LEVEL = { 80 | 90 | 100 }

to fix the compat level.

Good luck,

I was able to bring the DB's workable this time, by changing the compatibility level.
Thanks a Lot for the Info.

However, I still have issues persisting with logins.

Is there a way I can script the logins from a SQL6.5, so that I can transfer them over to 2000

Are you dealing with Windows Auth or Sql logins?

There are all sql logins.

I'm trying to script the logins but i'm not able to find the script to do so.
Something similar to sp_help_revlogin.
