I have a Virtual machine(on VMWare box) that is running Windows 2003 Std. 32bit OS.
I need to upgrade the server operating system from 2003 Std. to 2008 Std. I am currently running Microsoft SQL Server 2000. After OS upgrade, I will need to upgrade current SQL server 2000 to SQL Server 2008.
(1) Are there any known issues with in-place upgrade from 2003 to 2008 Std.?
(2) Once Step (1) is finished, I need to upgrade SQL Server to 2008 version. Are there any known issues with SQL Server Upgrade?
You should be okay, it's supported, just not 32bit to 64 bit.
