How to upgrade from a SQL Server 6.5 active/passive failover cluster (Setup)

To upgrade from a SQL Server 6.5 active/passive failover cluster

  1. Uncluster Microsoft® SQL Server™ version 6.5.

  2. Install a default instance of SQL Server 2000.

    You must install the binaries to a local drive and use a cluster disk for the data. This local drive is a path, which is a non-clustered disk valid on all nodes of the cluster. On all nodes of the cluster, this drive must have at least 300 megabytes (MB) of available space.

  3. Run the SQL Server Upgrade Wizard to migrate your data into SQL Server 2000.

  4. Uninstall SQL Server 6.5.

  5. Run SQL Server Setup to upgrade your default instance of SQL Server 2000 to a SQL Server 2000 failover cluster.

    For more information, see How to upgrade from a default instance to a default clustered instance of SQL Server 2000 (SQL Server Setup).
