I need to recover a SQL 2000 database. I have a backup of the database and of the master database. The original server was corrupt. I had to reinstall SQL. When I try to restore the databases, i get an error saying they cannot be recovered because the current version of SQL is different that the one the backup was made from. Both are SQL2000, but the backups were made under version 134217922. Does anyone know, or is there a way to find out exaclty which version or what patches were run to end up with version 134217922, or is there any way to get around this version issue to resore the databases? The version numbers are reported by Veritas Backup Exec

If you have your server at service pack 3a, the database should restore.
