Consider the following scenario:
You have a Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) 2002 Service Pack 1a (SP1a)-based database.
You use this database together with Microsoft SQL Server 2005.
You install MCMS 2002 Service Pack 2 (SP2).
You upgrade the SP1a-based database to MCMS 2002 SP2.
In this scenario, if you try to perform a site deployment export operation to SQL Server 2005, a time-out occurs on the export preview and the export operation fails.
This problem occurs because some stored procedure code in MCMS 2002 SP2 is incompatible with SQL Server 2005.

Note If additional issues occur or if any troubleshooting is required, you might have to create a separate service request.

Run the Data Configuration application. Select the existing MCMS SP1a-based database, and then click Next.
Make sure that the user who is upgrading the database has rights to change the database schema.
The _sp1atosp2upgrade.sql script file will only upgrade databases that are currently running at the MCMS 2002 SP1a level. After you run the _sp1atosp2upgrade.sql script file, the database will run at the MCMS 2002 SP2 level. You can upgrade the database before or after you run the MCMS 2002 SP2 update.
You can upgrade the database before or after you migrate the MCMS 2002 database from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005. However, you must upgrade the database before you use MCMS 2002 together with SQL Server 2005.
