Upgrade to SQL Server 2005 media

I am trying to find out if SAP provides a DVD with the SQL Server 2005 software for upgrade/installation as it did for 2000. I have found references in notes to using the DVD provided by SAP and a SQL4SAP vb script to run to do the install. And in other docs I see references to using the setup.exe provided on the media disk (I'm assuming here it is the MS media for SQL Server).

Is there a SAP disk for upgrading SQL Server? If so where can I find it.

If I can't locate this are there any issues to be aware of if I use the MS provided install disks for SQL Server 2005 to perform an upgrade?

Thanks 😉

Laurie

    Hi Laurie,

    DVD 51032641 is the SQL 2005 installation DVD for SAP.

    You cannot download it from service.sap.com, you have to order SAP standard software (SAP NetWeaver, SAP ERP, etc).

    Best regards,

    Victor

    Hi,

    just have a look here: service.sap.com/instguides and search for SQL Server. There you will find a documentation on how to install and upgrade to SQL Server 2005. There is no need to use DVDs delivered by SAP.

    Thanks for the info and links. As I suspected I can use our SQL Server 2005 product disks and I'll make sure to check the collation.
