I installed SQL 2005 Eval and SQL SP2 roughly 4 months ago to test a new application. My Client liked it and i purchased SQL 2005 Standard through Microsot Volume Licensing. i downloaded the software today (they provide a separate link for SQL SP2, which leads me to believe that the SQL install is not SP2 slipstreamed). when i tried to run the setup to make the SQL install proper i got a warning message prompting me to run the setup in command line.
Can anyone please show me what the syntax would be? what procedures need to be followed? do i need to get all users off the sql server before attempting this? does it matter that the SQL install from microsoft EOpen doesnt seem to be SP2 slipstreamed?
