    Unanswered: Upgrading to 2008 R2


    looking to Upgrade from SQL 2008 Enterprise to 2008 R2 Enterprise on Windows 2008 R2 Server (64 bit).

    Any known issues, gotchas, white papers, etc... that I should be looking for or prepare for?

    My guess is that an in-place upgrade should be quite easy as there should not be many changes from 2008 to 2008 R2.

    thanks for your help.

    The in place upgrade IS easy, but there are many changes (improvements) across the board. Just FYI, but if you are buying new licensing there are a lot of other issues to consider that can make SQL 2012 much more attractive than it would be otherwise.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    THanks Pat,

    We have thought about moving to 2012, but my company is very "weary" about using new versions of software until they have been out for at least 2 years.
