When you try to upgrade from Microsoft SQL Server 2000 to Microsoft SQL Server 2005, you may receive an error message that resembles the following:
This problem occurs if the Msdb.dbo.syscategories table has an existing Log Shipping entry in the Name column.
To work around this problem, delete or modify the Log Shipping entry in the Msdb.dbo.syscategories table before you try to upgrade to SQL Server 2005.
The following code example illustrates how to use the UPDATE statement to modify the entry.
use msdb GO UPDATE dbo.syscategories SET Name = 'Old_Log_Shipping' WHERE Name = 'Log Shipping' GO
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
