Need to DOWNGRADE to SQL Server 6.5 : LUSENET : SQL Server Database Administration : One Thread

Please help !

My webhosting service is running Sql Server 6.5 and I only have 7.0.. When I try to connect to it, it says the host must upgrade to 7.0 or later. Is there anything I can do to trick it into believing I'm 6.5 too?

Thank You,

I'm confused here. SQL Server client tools such as Enterprise Manager and Query Analyzer can connect to earlier SQL Server versions.

When you say, "When I try to connect to it" aren't you saying that you are having difficulty connecting from Enterprise Manager on your machine to a 6.5 SQL Server at your webhosting service? This should be doable.

Let me know if I understand your problem correctly and the exact wording (and error number if provided) of any error message you are receiving.

You wrote, "The error message reads: "NT902 - [SQL-DMO]SQL Server NT902 must be upgraded to version 7.0 or later to be administered by this version of SQL-DMO"

My research indicates that (despite my previous statements) you cannot administer SQL 6.5 from EM 7.0.

The work around is for you to install a copy of SQL Server 6.5 Enterprise Manager to administer that server.

Hope this helps,
