After upgrading from sql 2005 standard to 2008 r2, the version number of the database engine still reads 9.0.3080. the BIDs seemed to upgrade, and the 2005 SSIS packages went through the upgrade process. Now the sql jobs can't run the packages because they appear to be a more recent version than SQL???? We've tried to run a repair, but the version number still reflects sql 2005. Any ideas?

have you been selecting the database engine component when upgrading.
also check nt event logs, sql server event logs for errors.
also check C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log for the summaryxxx.txt files

Re-Run the upgrade if it is still seen as version 9.0.3080 the upgrade wizard should still let you run the upgrade

Never could get the database engine to upgrade so I uninstalled all sql and tried to reinstall, but it still thinks there is an installation using the default instance. I think I may have to rebuild this server from scratch.

You could remove the registry entries and then you could reinstall

I tried removing keys under local machine software microsoft sql server and mssqlserver but still there was some remnant of the default instance. I gave up and rebuilt the server. Thanks for your help.
