Hi,

I am planning to upgrade sql2000 sp4 to sql2005, but am not sure whether I need to purchase any specific license for sql2005.

My current sql2000 sp4 already has been licensed.

Please advise.

thanks &
Regards

That generally does not matter. Upgrading to SQL Server 2005 is not free, or trivial upgrade fee. Basically you need a new license unless you are in a special assurance program (that cost money also).

Best to discuss it with your reseller.
