Hi guys, we are currently running SQL 2000 Standard and are going to go SQL 2008 in the near future. We want to do some testing on a test box. I have two questions. The first is can someone direct me to a link that covers the upgrade from 2000 to 2008? Secondly, for the purposes of testing, I installed a fresh box with just SQL 2008. Can I restore databases from a SQL 2000 backup to 2008 OR just make a copy of the existing mdb files and attach them in SQL 2008 or would this screw things up. Also, if you know off the top of your heads, what are the performance benefits of upgrading consider it will be on the same hardware? For example, speed of indexing and lock handling are two big problem areas for us. Would we a marked improvement in these areas?
