Fresh SD 4.5 installation on SQL Server 2005

Hi!

We are doing a fresh installation of SD 4.5 on a server with SQL 2005. Is this possible? The problem is that we use the original installation files when running the DB Config wizard. We haven´t applied the latest SP yet. Is upgrading from SQL 2000 to 2005 the only alternative?

Regards
Mikael

For SQL 2005 support you must replace the old Opta2000.jar file with the new Opta.jar

See itsm008421 under doc dir in SP21 package for more information.

I would belive upgrading from 2000 to 2005 is your only option if you dont have a original installation of HPOVSD 4.5 sporting the SP21 integrated.

Hello Mikael,

You need ITSM008395 that is "Support SQL Server 2005 for OVSD 4.5". You can find it at

http://openview.hp.com/ecare/getsupportdoc?docid=SDSK_00071

However it is for SP16 or later and I don't know if it's going to work on vanilla OVSD.
