    Hi, all:
    I have a planned upgrade from 2000-2008 upcoming, and need tips on what I need to know for sp_configuration settings.
    For example, xp_cmdshell is turned off by default...What other configurations will I need to look for and/or configure? THX
    Any links are good too!

    Recently in MS Tech-Ed North America and most of the European conferences I have talked about this subject extensively. You might search on www.msteched.com site to find that presentation and also on www.sqlbits.com website.
    The first place to start is to run Best practices analyzer to get list of practices on your environment, as a general practice it is recommended to DISABLE/STOP but it may be required by your application.

    Thx for quick reply! I'll search, but it would be great if you can post the direct link....
    What about the Upgrade Advisor? Much value?
