SQL / NT Y2K ?

I'm currently running SQL 6.5 with the latest service pack on it. However, the NT server is currently on SP3. In order to get this Y2K compliant do I need to upgrade service packs on NT ? I've also heard a lot of horror stories about doing SP upgrades on NT with SQL.. can anyone give me some pointers ?

Many thanks.

There is a service pack for NT 4.0 only for Y2K purposes, other than SP4. I suggest you visiting Microsoft web site.

We installed service pack 4 for Windows NT on our SQL Server 6.5 service pack 4 machine at november 1998 and all was ok. We not reconfigured anything in SQL Server configuration.

Read about:
"Important steps for installing Service Pack 4"
http://www.ntfaq.com/ntfaq/servpack24.html#servpack24
and don't forget about choosing uninstall option (it require 40Mb addition space on your hard disk).

Look also here:

Please, attentively see these links and I hope that you will have not a problems with installation, also as at us.
