Invalid input trace file or the version of the trace file is not supported.


Applies to: SQL Server 2000 Standard Edition SP4, SQL Server 2005 Upgrade Advisor

 

Problem Description.
 

We were using SQL Server 2005 Upgrade Advisor to analyze a trace file created using SQL Server 2008 Profiler of a SQL Server 2000 instance with Service Pack 4 installed that we were planning to upgrade to SQL Server 2005. However, we were getting the following error, right after Upgrade Advisor started the analysis.

Microsoft.SqlServer.BestPracticesAnalyzer.UpgradeAdvisor
Invalid input trace file or the version of the trace file filename.trc is not supported







Cause.


SQL Server 2005 Upgrade Advisor is expecting a trace file created with SQL Server 2000 Profiler.

 

Solution.


Please, create the trace file using SQL Server 2000 Profiler.
