Upgrading SQL Server
Posted in Tech
First dog watch, 3 bells (5:37 pm)

I finally got my SQL server upgrade project finished! Despite a few rough patches (namely the Reporting Server not working) things went fairly smooth, although I did write up a document on how to migrate a Microsoft CRM v3 SQL and Reporting Server to a new machine so I don't go through quite so much pain next time.

Our new server is a dual quad-core Xeon box with 16Gb of RAM, it's flipping sweet. Unless you run something like this you have no idea how seriously fast it is. It's awesome. Our old system took so much longer, and I thought it was a good server. I guess that just goes to show you, when you go with Microsoft, you'd better get the fastest hardware you can afford.
