SQL 2008 upgrade to 2008 R2
Posted on 2011-03-16
Forgive me experts for asking such a simple question on here, but I don't feel like being on hold with Microsoft for 60 minutes and my Google searching hasn't turned up a definitive answer.
We currently have two servers installed with 1PROC licenses of SQL 2008, both are running SSRS only. We'd like to take advantage of some new features available in SQL 2008 R2
Do we need to purchase new licenses for these machines? I can't seem to tell whether 2008 R2 is a new release or if it's available as an upgrade to existing SQL 2008 users?
Can someone help me out?
