    This response comes late, but in my limited experience with SQL Server 2005, I didn't find any known issues. Something to be careful of is the default collation when setting up the new DB server. Mismatches between case sensitivity and potentially other settings might cause reports to fail.

    If you're migrating the Repository database as well from SQL 2000 to SQL 2005, you need to also to update the security files by taking the steps below:

    1. Stop the server

    2. Rename the existing security files (bomain.key and bomain.lsi)

    3. Run the Safe Recovery to regenerate a new bomain.key

    4. Run the Scan, Repair and Compact of the Repository

    5. Copy the new bomain.key to the locdata located at u2026\nodes\<server>\<cluster>\locdata
