Building a new Test Server to test 2.0 on


E

Ed

Hello,

I am setting up a new test server to test out 1.2 HQ RMS upgrade to 2.0 HQ
RMS. In setting up the 1.2 HQ RMS, I copy the 23GB Database from the HQ RMS
Backup Server. Then Restore it the database in HQ RMS on the test server, it
did not prompt me to upgrade to full 2000 SQL Server database. I can open
the database fine and query it. I was thinking there was a 2GB limit to the
version on the CD-ROM, would it because I copy the database from a server
with the full version 2000 SQL? I am needed to get feedback on this before
moving ahead with the 2.0 test.

Good afternoon Ed,

Thank you for posting your server question.

If the HQ database is really 23 GB then I am guessing there was already a
full version of SQL 2000 on the server.

MSDE will only support up to 2 GB.

You may also want to see if the database shrunk from 23 GB to something
less than 2 GB when it was restored. You could check the size of the
database by connecting to it via Store Operations Administrator (File |
Connect); and then viewing the size in Database | Properties.

Hopefully this helps.
