Upgrade from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005
I am upgrading four sql servers 2000 to 2005. If i do an inplace upgrade to the default instance would i need to change any passwords for linked servers, services or sql accounts?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you do an in place upgrade then all those passwords should remain.

You’ll want to have copies of the passwords just in case though.

  • well this is how my upgrade went on four sql servers: 1. First error I got was in the tools installation part. I chose to install the tools but i did not have the tools folder and the servers folder together. 2. Log shipping broke! I had to fix it by backing up the main database in the primary server then restoing it in a standby mode in the secondary server. then applying all new transaction logs created after the full backup. 3. The rest was a piece of cake.
