Software Vendor Recommendation: SQL Standard 2000-Per Processor Version
Posted on 2006-11-20
I am a third-party network administrator. I am working with a client whose software vendor has recommended upgrading MSDE to SQL 2000 Standard-specifically the "Per Processor" version. They have stated the following relating to this recommendation:
1-Their product is only supported on SQL 2K Standard up to SP3a......not SP4
2-Their product is not supported on the latest version of SQL Standard (2005?) and support for that version of SQL is at least a year out.
I'm not feeling too warm and fuzzy about this vendor based on these and other recommendations they have made in the past.....and I'm curious what a SQL specialist would say in response to these SQL-related vendor recommendations.
