Service Pack 2 Beta Program for SQL Server 2000 Announced

By Brian Knight,

Microsoft has announced that it is looking for testers for SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 2. You can join the beta testers program for SQL Server 2000 SP 2 by signing into http://www.betaplace.com. You will then have to fill out a short survey about your SQL Server environment and how you plan to test SQL Server. Once at the site, use the following information to sign in.

Beta ID = SQL2000SP2
Password = SIGNMEUP (case sensitive).

Service Pack 2 offers a number of fixes in each of the main product lines. It also upgrades the connectivity to MDAC 2.6 SP2. There are also a few minor new features in the service pack that can’t be discussed in this article, but can be discovered once you sign up for the beta.

 Once you’re enrolled in the beta program, some of the benefits include:

  • Private access to the beta newsgroup
  • Access to service pack chat sessions about new features and fixes
  • Access to beta service pack

Keep in mind that when you’re signed up, there is a commitment to test the service pack, which can take a substantial amount of your time. Those that are active participants increase their chances of receiving a sneak peek at the next release of SQL Server, code named “Yukon”.
