DBCreate database restore fails with error message:
"The backed-up database has on-disk structure version 611. The server supports version 539 and cannot restore or upgrade this database. [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally."
- I/NET Seven
- SQL Server 2000 all editions and SQL 2005 all editions
It is not possible to restore a SQL Database which was backed up using SQL 2005 back into a SQL 2000 database.
The simplest method to rectify this problem would be to uninstall I/NET and SQL (Refer to Procedure for uninstalling I/NET Seven on a stand-alone host on how to do this) and then re-install I/NET using SQL 2005.
The second method would be to upgrade the installed MSDE Default instance to SQL 2005 Express. There is a published white paper from Microsoft on this and is attached here: MSDEtoSQLExpress.doc. Refer to the steps on page 11 to 14. The SQLExpress installation file is available on the I/NET CD under the folder SQLExpress\.SQLEXPR32.EXE.
After performing these steps its advisable to run up DBCreate and upgrade the SQL database.
