Hi Experts,

We've successfully detached, copied and re-attached our CRM dtabases from a SQL 2000 instance to a SQL 2005 instance.  The are working fine but are version 8.0.  We're reinstalling CRM 3.0 now and the media we are using seems to want us to upgrade the database version to 9.0.  What is the safest and easiest way to get theese data bases that are already attached to the new SQL 2005 instance upgraded to 9.0

Thanks in advance

We have detached the DBs and copied them over and are working - we need to UPGRADE the dbs themselves now

if you restore a sql server 2000 database on a sql server 2005 instance, then it is upgraded during the restore operation

We could not restore the .bak files and had to resort to attaching the data files to the new instance - they are nicely attached and we really just want to upgrade them where they are

Easy, right click the DB select options. Change  the Database Compatibility mode from  to SQL 2000 (80) to SQL 2005 (90). Then you are done you do not have to restore anything.
Unless you need to run scripts from the vendor to up upgrade the DB to run with the app.
