My company has been growing and we have reached the point where we are getting too large for SBE. So we are going to upgrade to Standard Edition. All the software is in place, but I am wondering what the easiest way to do this is going to be. Can I simply preform an upgrade, or do I need to uninstall the OS and reinstall the new, or better yet what are the pros and cons of each method.
I know that we are going to have some down time, but if I don't have to rebuild the server from scratch on one of my weekends that would be great.
