4. Upgrading SQL Server

SMS 2003 SP 2 and above versions provide support for both SQL Server 2000 SP 4 and SQL Server 2005. If your site database server is running SQL Server 2000, you will need to upgrade to SQL Server 2005 and apply Service Pack 2 before you can upgrade your SMS primary site.

Running the Upgrade Advisor

Before upgrading SQL Server, download and run the latest SQL Server 2005 Upgrade Advisor from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=1470e86b-7e05-4322-a677-95ab44f12d75&displaylang=en (at www.microsoft.com/downloads, search for SQL Server 2005 Upgrade Advisor). After the download is complete, execute the SQLUASetup.msi Installer package to install the Upgrade Advisor. Once it is installed, you can launch the Upgrade Advisor from Start -> Programs -> Microsoft SQL Server 2005. The welcome screen shown in Figure 7 includes the option Launch Upgrade Advisor Analysis Wizard.

The Analysis Wizard allows you to select the components and databases to analyze, and it generates a report. You can view the report from the launch report button when the wizard completes, or you can use the Launch Upgrade Advisor Report Viewer link on the Upgrade Advisor welcome screen. Be sure to investigate any potential problems indicated in the Upgrade Advisor report.

The report shown in Figure 8 identified an issue with one of the extended stored procedures registered by SMS. The links in the report indicated that the affected object was the extended stored procedure xp_SMS_notification. Following the instructions on the “Tell me more about this issue and how to resolve it” link, the issue was corrected by executing the following SQL queries to re-register the procedure with the full path:

sp_dropextendedproc xp_SMS_notification
sp_addextendedproc xp_SMS_notification, 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\smsxp.dll'

Performing the Upgrade

After preparing your database server for the SQL Server upgrade, you can launch the Setup from SQL Server installation media splash screen. Perform the following steps:

1.
To access the splash screen, insert the CD if autoplay is enabled, or launch the screen from \servers\default.hta on the installation media.

2.
Setup first installs the Microsoft SQL Native Client and Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Setup Support Files. You can install the server components after this step completes. In most cases, you will simply choose to upgrade the default SQL Server instance and select all options to match your existing configuration.

3.
You will have the option to install additional components, as shown in Figure 9. For example, you might want to install the Reporting Services component if you plan to install a reporting services point at the site and use SQL Reporting Services for your reports.

4.
When Setup completes, you can run the optional Surface Area Configuration Tool. You may want to run the tool at this time to enhance security by reducing the attack surface of your SQL Server.

5.
After upgrading to SQL Server 2005, you will need to download and apply Service Pack 2. It is generally a good idea at this point to visit the Windows Update site and apply any recommended SQL Server 2005 post–SP 2 updates.
