is sqlserver 2000 compatible with windows 2003 ?

Hi !

when installing sqlserver 2000 on a Windows 2003 server it explicitly
tells "server not compatible with Windows 2003" during install, but it
can carry on.
After we applied serfice pack 3a then the db server seems to run
normally, but does it risk to behave randomly afterwards ???
Is sqlserver 2000 standard edition compatible with Windows 2003 server
?
Or does it exist a specific sqlserver edition for Win2003 ?

thanks !

You may find these articles interesting.

The important point is [from MSKB article]:
"To work around this behavior, install SQL Server 2000 SP3 or later
immediately after you install SQL Server 2000."

HTH,

I have SQL 2k Enterprise running on Windows 2003. I've not had any
trouble with it, and I assume the standard version would work as well.
I don't remember getting an error message when installing, though I
may just not remember it.
