Upgrading a SIMS.net Server from Server 2000 to 2003
My school currently has 2x 2k3 DC's and a 2k member server that hosts the SIMS.net and FMS databases. I've been told by my LA that I need to upgrade the SIMS machine to Server 2k3. I've done upgrade installs before on Server 2k member servers but never with an SQL database.
Is there anything extra I should be doing before the upgrade? I'm assuming I'll have to stop the MSQL services and make sure no-one is connected to SIMS or FMS.(I'll be taking a full disk image of the server and SIMS.net backups, plus copying all data to a backup server.)
Thanks in advance
