Can SQL Server 2000 (32-bit) run on Windows Server 2003 64-bit?
Posted on 2009-04-13
We have a customer using a database-driven program that does not function well on versions of SQL server later than 2000. The software developer is strongly encouraging us to NOT move beyong SQL Server 2000.
We are setting up a server to server as a domain controller for approximately 40 users, with SQL Server 2000 running on it - we would like to use the 64-bit version of WIndows to utilize the new capabilities of the Nehalem processors.
Will there be any issues with running SQL Server 2000 on 64-bit Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition?
