System Requirements for SQL-DMO
SQL-DMO uses the Microsoft® SQL Server™ ODBC driver to connect to and communicate with instances of SQL Server. Stored procedures supporting SQL-DMO are installed on each instance of SQL Server.
SQL-DMO clients require one of these operating systems:
- Microsoft Windows NT® version 4.0 (Service Pack 5 or later).
- Microsoft Windows® 98 or Microsoft Windows® 95.
- Microsoft Windows® 2000.
SQL-DMO clients require SQL Server ODBC Driver, version 3.80 or later, which ships with SQL Server 2000. The client network library must be properly configured.
SQL-DMO locates instances of SQL Server using the SQL Server instance name. SQL-DMO does not use ODBC data source definitions for connection, and you need not use the ODBC Administrator to create data source definitions for servers administered by SQL-DMO applications.
Stored procedures that support SQL-DMO are created as part of an instance of SQL Server 2000. The Transact-SQL script Sqldmo.sql is shipped with SQL Server 2000 and can be used to reinstall the required stored procedures if necessary.
