SQL Server 2005 upgrade
We want to upgrade our SQL Server 2000 to SQL 2005. What should we watch out for and what is the actual procedure for the upgrade? Will it require another server or can the upgrade be done in place?

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

It can be done in place. It should be done in a test environment to ensure that there are no issues.

Make sure to update the statistics on the SQL 2005 database after the upgrade to ensure that everything works correct. The SQL 2005 engine can not use the SQL 2000 statistics.
