- Start with MS SQL2005 upgrade advisor (analysis your sql2000 db)
- fix the problems it detects in your sql2000-db
- Keep in mind to test your applications when modifying the sql2000 db problems. They should be perform at sql2000 side !
- determind the path for migration :
* permare user id's to be migrated (especialy sqlusers)
* backup / restore
* detach / attatch
- DBCC CHECKDB (0) WITH ALL_ERRORMSGS, DATA_PURITY;
(and if it finds issues, fix thenm !)
- run full maintenance (rebuild index / sp_updatestats / dbcc updateuseage)
- determine when you are going to switch db_level to 90.
* and then switch it a the negotiated point in time.
- test your applications thoroughly !
Prepare DTS migration ... SSIS development may be your biggest issue !
