Goal

Implementing Snapshot Isolation on a SQL Server 2005 Project Management or Methodology Management database has the potential to eliminate data contention and reduce deadlocks, lock contentions, and session waits.  The instruction in this document will help verify that Snapshot Isolation is set for each database, and turn it on if it is not.

This setting should automatically be set for P6 v6.1 and later releases during the upgrade.  In the event it is not set, these steps should be followed.
