SQL 2000 Q: duplicate database

Hi folks

I know just enough about MS-SQL to be dangerous, so feel free to warn
me off this it's too much for a non-expert.

We are using SQL 2000 as the back-end for website. We would like to
create a duplicate of the database (on the same server). Then we'd use
them like this:

Database A: read-write DB accessed by web administrator
Database B: read-only 'live' DB accessed by the web server

The smarts: setting up a way to maintain Database A, have it be
accessible internally (maybe different IP, maybe different port) and
when a change is approved, have that change replicate to Database B to
be visible on the website.

I'm wondering if it's something I can do myself with the right
reading, or I'm going to have to hire some SQL know-how to help me
out.

We do something similar to this with two servers. (That way if one crashes,
we have more options).

Believe it or not, one option I'd consider is replication. Yes, it's
unusual to have the publisher, distributer and subscriber on the same
machine, but nothing rules it out.

Another way is to do log-shipping.

The smarts: setting up a way to maintain Database A, have it be
accessible internally (maybe different IP, maybe different port) and
when a change is approved, have that change replicate to Database B to
be visible on the website.
You could do multiple instances of SQL Server, but then I'm pretty sure you
need Enterprise license which greatly drives up your cost.

Hi All, I'm having a problem trying to add a record to a simple Access 2000 db (db is very similar to an address book but with more info than the usual address, phone, etc.).

The rest of the fields comprise of 30 text fields, 3 memo fields, 1 date field and 1 currency field. Text fields vary in number of characters allowed. ...

The following problem seems to manifest itself in Access 2000, but I have not experienced it with Access 97. When I make a duplicate of a form before I make design changes to that form that I may want to reverse, it seems to screw up the code for the whole database. This seems to be caused by some sort of conflict between the code for the two identical forms. Obviously, if one doesn't have a recent backup, they have a major problem on...

Hi All, Our company is migrating from Windows NT to XP and in the process from Access 97 to Access 2003. Due to the phased rollout we are faced with a situation where some users are still on NT while others have been fully upgraded, but all users need to use the same Access databases. At first we tried just opening the Access 97 databases with XP but we were worried that some of the less computer-literate employees may click "yes" on...

Hello I have 2 locations, that each has an MSSQL 2000 server. Since the locations are to far from each other and the connection is very slow. My thought was to have a database on both servers that should replicate “on the fly” or as asynchronous sync. The problem is that both locations work in the database frequently. So

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
