EPO 4 and SQL upgrade to 2005

Our windows team are upgrading their SQL 2000 dbs's to 2005 . We have EPO 4 installed . Is there a requirement to upgrade EPO or will EPO 4 continue to work as is.

Can anyone advise if there is any work need to be done within EPO itself or will it just continue ok after SQL 2005 is installed.

Thanks in advance.

Re: EPO 4 and SQL upgrade to 2005

If you're just upgrading the SQL servers in place, then as far as I know you should be fine. There should be no need to do anything from the ePO side of things.

I would, however, very strongly recommend that (a) you back up the existing SQL2000 db prior to the upgrade of SQL, and (b) that the three ePO services are stopped before SQL is upgraded.
