I'm sure this question has been asked a thousand times. My company are fully paid on all licences for Windows 2000 Server and SQL 7.0 and are now interested in upgrading to SQL 2000. Is there an upgrade path/cost plan for our situation or it is a complete new buy and we override all licences for SQL 7.0?
To me (from what I know) it is crazy that even though we are fully licenced up with SQL 7.0 (and recently) that a full buy is required and that our licences cannot be transferred. Maybe the reason Bill's so rich!
Well I may not comment on the MS strategy but thats how business works. So its better to get details from the originator than middle-man in the licensing issues. May be you can check your local shops for any incentives by the providers or on the web.
