I am preparing for MOSS 2007 SP2 upgrade for my client (quite late though).

I am following SP2 - Step By Step article.

I am just curious if it is mendatory (or advisable) to rebuild the DB index before the upgrade?

Please suggest...

It isn't mandatory, but as upgrading is very database intensive it may be a good idea to limit the downtime during the upgrade.

Thanks Per, my SharePoint 2007 environment is not that hug, it has just one site collection and 3-4 content databases. – Sudhir Kesharwani Apr 3 '12 at 9:49
