    Hi Mayur,

    Degrading sofeware is very hard and i don't think it is feasible to degrade SQL server 2005 to 2000.

    Practically the SAP B1 2004 runs fine with SQL Server 2005, but SAP has not tested it deeply and announced that's no problem.

      Hi Mayur,

      Creating three (!!!) topics on your same problem will NOT help you to get the answer quicker. Please read the /thread/117232 [original link is broken] for your future posts. If you really have a burning question, contact SAP support...

      Concerning your question, SQL server 2005 is NOT supported by your SBO version. So it can NOT be installed. If you purchased SBO from SAP, they could provide you the correct SQL server version.

      However, you should be able to buy a license for SQL server 2000 at Microsoft. It's still supported...

      So you have two options; buy SBO 2005 SP01, or buy SQL server 2000.

      Good luck,

      Rowdy

    Hi Mayur,

    I'm afraid degrading SQL Server 2005 it's very problematic and I do not recommend you to do it.

    Kind regards

    Hello Everybody,

    De grading SQL 2005 to SQL 2000 may be difficult but if you order SQL 2005 one can request sql 2000 from Microsoft. you can get Degrading CD (separate) or SQL 2000 CD which get activated on licence of SQL 2005. Note that SQL sever 2000 is not available in Market. One has to request it directly to Microsoft for it.
