Greetings,

Believe it or not, I am running Sybase SQL Server version 5.5.04 Build#
1867 on a Windows NT 4.0 server SP5. I am in the process of planning a
migration to Windows 2000 Server and I would like to know if I am
compatible (I sincerely doubt it) and, if not, what I need to do to get
there. I would also like to get an idea of the cost associated with such
an upgrade.

Thanks in advance!

Regards,

Alan

Believe it or not, you are NOT running Sybase SQL Server version 5.5.04. What you really
are running is Sybase SQL Anywhere version 5.5.04. To run on Win2K you need an EBF for
5.5.04, or you can upgrade to 5.5.05.
