Only my development nodes will have SQL 2000/2005/2008 installed. My prod servers will be 2005/2008 and 2000 by itself.
Solved! Go to Solution.

"If you will be installing SQL Server 2000 instances and SQL Server 2005/2008 instances on the same node, the SQL Server 2000 instances (including SP4) must be installed first."
From 3.6.2 HP PolyServe for Microsoft SQL Administration guide page 17

THe safest thing is to install at least one 2005 instance before installing a 2008 instance. Once 2005 is installed once you can add additional 2005 instances without installing the base product again.
2000 and 2005 were a bit more rigid about this since 2005 was built on 2000 and for 2000 to work properly it had to be installed first.

Emil, are you saying to install another 2005 instance after the upgrade?
And does 3.6.2 support 32 bit O/S?
