Welcome to the Sybase/UNIX to SQL Server 2000: Database Engine Migration and Application Interoperation Guide. This guide is both practical and prescriptive. It provides proven guidance about the issues that you are likely to encounter as you consider, plan, and migrate from Sybase databases (Version 11.9 and later) on UNIX platforms to Microsoft® Windows® Server™ 2003 and Microsoft SQL Server™ 2000. The guidance is based on the experiences of consultants working in the field and organizations that successfully migrated from UNIX to Windows, and it comprises the best patterns and practices that exist at the time of publishing. All processes and procedures contained in this guide have been thoroughly tested in a lab environment and have been validated through the Microsoft Technology Adoption Program.
