    Uninstalling SQL2000

    Over the summer holiday we installed SQL2005 and ran it alongside SQL2000. All seemed ok. Last Wednesday I got round to uninstalling the old SQL2000 that wasn’t needed anymore. All went ok but today I have checked the server application logs and it is a sea of red! The error is from SQLBrowser and gives the error ‘The SQL configuration for SQL is inaccessible or invalid’ Event ID 1.

    Any ideas?

    Erm, I think you're supposed to run SQL2000 alongside SQL2005 until the November Sims.Net upgrade. Might be wrong on this though.

    Re: Uninstalling SQL2000

    That's what they've told us originally but then they said to leave it on 'as it won't do any harm'...

    Found this.....

    Anonymous (Last update 7/12/2006):
    In my case, this event occurred after the SQL Server 2000 databases had been deleted from the same box where SQL Server 2005 was installed as well. The SQL Browser service is part of the SQL Server 2005 and it was still looking for them. After a reboot, the error was gone.

    Thanks. Looks like the same info I found. A reboot has stopped the error so it looks like it's fixed

    SQL 2000 and 2005 can co-exist because SIMS might not be the only application using one or the other.

    Re: Uninstalling SQL2000

    Quite… but it would be interesting to know how much resources are being used by unused services such as SQL2000 that are just sitting there?
