SQL Server 2000 SP4 Upgrade Issue
Posted on 2010-01-04
Hello, I have MSDE 2000 (sp2) installed on a Windows Server 2003 server. When attempting to upgrade to sp4 (with SQL2000.MSDE-KB884525-SP4-x86-ENU.EXE), I get the following message and the upgrade stops:
The instance name specified is invalid.
I am wondering if sp3 has to be installed before installing sp4. If not, I am out of ideas as to what is causing this issue.
Here is the server's SQL version information:
Microsoft SQL Server 2000 - 8.00.760 (Intel X86) Dec 17 2002 14:22:05 Copyright (c) 1988-2003 Microsoft Corporation Desktop Engine on Windows NT 5.2 (Build 3790: Service Pack 2)
Thank you in advance.
