Im new to using sql server. My client got a new server and we upgraded to the latest of all software. They have sql server 2008 trial edition to make sure that it worked correctly with the MCS software that uses sql. We purchased the full version of sql. Im wondering if there is an easy was to upgrade from trial to full version. I was told to make sure that backwards compatability is installed as well. I know some software trials you can just add the CD keys and it automatically becomes liscensed and continues working as norm. Any points or help would be appreciated. Also how / is the best way to perform sql backups?
