Upgrade SQL Server 2000 to 2005

Dear All,

I would like to upgrade SQL server 2000 on Windows 2003 x64 to SQL server 2005 but could not proceed because of the following error during the upgrade process.

"your upgrade is blocked because of edition upgrade rules"

Does anyone have tip to bypas this or easy upgrade strategy ?

Regards, Hardon

    SAP does not support SQL Server 2005 as a target anymore as SQL Server 2005 support by Microsoft has ended. Windows Server 2003 support period has ended as well.

    Consider your upgrade scenario by using SQL Server 2008 instead.

    Check SAP Note

    (check full details in the thread)
