Client has SQL2000 with a schedule upgrade to SQL 2005 in 2011. They'd like to have SalesLogix v7.5.2+ installed quickly without migrating all the applications to SQL2005 immediately. SQL2000 is not listed as tested for SLX v7.5.x. I don't expect any issues but has anyone experienced or have any comments. 2000 to 2005 migration is scheduled late 2Q11 during their down time rather than a busy season that they are in now.

The 7.5.3 version of the the SalesLogix "server" is hard-coded to NOT let you choose the (SQL2k) OLEDB provider and hence does NOT support using SQL2k.
Having said that.. there is a "trick" (hack) that WILL let you use SQL2k.... get a copy of the v7.5.0 "connection manager" and put it on the desktop... Use that to make the SalesLogix Server to SQL2k db connection. ;-) The connection WILL show in the v7.5.3 copy BUT you cannot modify it.
