    SQL 2000 enterprise manager managing SQL 6.5 databases


    I have used SQL 7.0 enterprise manager to manage SQL 6.5 databases. I upgraded
    to SQL 2000 and now cannot do the same. I have loaded the software on two
    different PC's one being NT 4 and the other Win 2000. Do you know whether
    this functionality has been dropped, if not possibly why I am experiencing
    this problem?

    In order for a 7.0 box to access a 6.5 box, the 6.5 client tools needed to
    already be installed when you loaded the 7.0 client tools. All that the 7.0
    EM does is fire up an instance of the old 6.5 EM (the 7.0 EM can't manage
    6.5 boxes directly). I haven't tried doing this with 2000 as yet, but I
    would strongly suspect that the rules are the same - whatever box you're
    trying to run the 2000 tools from must already have had the 6.5 tools
    installed if you want to manage 6.5 boxes.

    Sorry, I guess that I should have been a little clearer. I have the 6.5 tools
    loaded on the machine. Whenever I try to access a 6.5 database, the enterprise
    manager just gives an error and then shuts down. I am not in the office right
    now, but could post the error tomorrow if that is alright.

    That would be great - then I'd be happy to look into a bit (I haven't seen
    this particular problem before).
