I am starting "the" upgrade and have found out that the server is only on SP3. I have only one migrationwindow :-( as it looks now.
I am only using databases and DTS.
I know the best practice says SP4, but has anyone succeeded migrating on SP3?
My first thought is Backup/restore, I believe that that is the best solution.
I will run the upgrade wizard for SQL 2008 next week. I have read in a couple of threads that you should also run the upgrade wizard for 2005 as well, is that necessary?
I will also dig in the the massive dokumentation when I get my hands on the server.
Does anyone have any information/suggestions what not to do or do :-).
My main issue right now is, do I need SP4 first..
