most of us are still working on older, SQL Server 2000 servers

Are there any statistics on this?!

As a freelancer most of the sites I work at are still extensively 2000, with a few 2005 servers. Almost all the businesses I've worked with are still only just considering converting to SQL 2008, as the general consensus among big business (and especially local government) in the UK seems to be "if it works, leave it alone".

So from personal experience I would say 2000 use is still extensive.

Nice workaround, if you do have SQL 2005 indeed. Thus, why not to migrate your SQL 2000 dbs to SQL 2005?

Lots of reasons. The business may not see a requirement to migrate the database, there may be elements that won't convert easily, they may not sanction the development time to re-write stored procs or convert hundreds of DTS packages. I've run into all these and more as reasons why companies don't migrate databases.

Yes. I was wondering about the article, not your post, but the other side, those small companies thata can't afford a new SQL Server.

I agree with you that many companies won't upgrade their SQL 2000 for all it implies to them.

From the article:
It might take a few more years before all of the existing SQL Server 2000 applications are upgraded to newer versions of SQL Server.


SQL 2000 SP4 drops out of the extended support phase in April 2013. After that MS won't be doing any security patches, so security holes won't get fixed and your enterprise is at risk. So you need to be planning on upgrading within the next 36 months. http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=2852

RE : SQL 2000. I've been telling a client for more than 6 months that they should upgrade their server and move to at least SQL 2005. This week the 10 year old hardware failed. they are now upgrading by default :-D

I still have to support a SQL 2000 instance for a vendor application that the business can't afford to upgrade at the moment. The new version of the software is a hosted system and very expensive. The current version does not support any SQL beyond 2000.

I don't find configuring SQL Mail on SQL 2000 to be very difficult, but it's nice to know there are options.
