The day started with a “Hands-on-Lab” Session. And of course: A Hands-on-Lab is the best way to get into the technologies.
In this session I migrated a 32 Bit SQL Server Database to a 64 Bit SQL Server Database (all SQL Server 2005)…it went flawlessly with the help of Visual Studio 2005. ;)
“The purpose of this Hands-on Lab is to install SQL Server 2005 on HP Integrity Server (Itanium II based system). Once SQL Server installed, the attendee will migrate an application database (tables, store procedures and logins) from SQL Server 2000 using Integration Services to the 64 bit platform. Then, using Visual Studio 2005, the attendee will convert one of the stored procedures of the application to the Common Language Runtime.”
