  • 1. Error during upgrade of sql server 7 to 2000
    Hello! I'm trying to upgrade SQL Srerver 7.0 SP4 to SQL Server 2000, dg the upgrade I received the error message " Error running script:messages.sql(1)". I found Microsoft article 300676 how to fix this problem. In this article they provide link to the new setup file you have to download in order to fix your installation. Here's the link and it doesn't work: ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/sql/transfer/sql80/setup/ Does anybody know the correct link to this file? Thank you, Lena
  • 2. Remote Access to SQL Server
    Hi All, I want to know one thing regarding remotely administering our SQL Server. Right now we have a one- tier architecture, we will soon have a 2-tier. My question is, usually DB Servers don't have an outside I.P. Address, so then how do I remotely administer it? If I want to create a new table, change table designs, create stored procedures, how would I do this without an outside IP Address for the DB Server? Thanks

  • 4. SQL Server 2000 versions
    Does anyone know the differences between SQL Server 2000 from the MSDN and the retail version? This would be the enterprise edition. I am thinking they are the same, but want to check to make sure. If anyone knows, if there are differences, that would be great.
  • 5. Installing SQL2000 and MOM
    After installing SQL2000 on a W2003 stand alone server followed by MOM. MOM fails to recognize SQL as being present. Error: "Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or a higher version was not found." SQL appears to be running 'normally'. Any ideas why MOM will not recognise SQL as being present?

3.The SQL Server product key is not valid (Error code 0x84B40000)


I've downloaded SQL Server 2008 R2 Developer (license key states 
pre-pidded). Then I install the product with no problem. The license key is 
defaulted in the setup. But after the install I wanted to add som features to 
the install (wanted to add BIDS afterwards). Then I get this error and the 
setup closes...

The SQL Server product key is not valid.  To proceed, re-enter the product 
key values from the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) or SQL Server Packaging.
Error code 0x84B40000

4.Unattended MSSQL Server Express 2005 installation...

Stupid question from a newbie:

I want to run the following command to install MSSQL Express 2005:


The trick is I want to add the SQLACCOUNT parameter as well but this,
too, uses double-quotes (e.g. SQLACCOUNT="NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM").

How can I include all of this so that I can have double-quotes nested
inside of double-quotes?

Hi all,
