SQL2008R2 multiple instances on the machine
Posted on 2011-04-19
I currently have a box with SQL 2008 Express and SQL 2008 R2 Express Edition.instances.
On that server I have installed Sharepoint using a single server configuration which is using the SQL 2008 Express instance, I installed the SQL 2008 R2 Express edition to take advantage of the 10GB database size but now that we have available a full license for SQL 2008 R2 Enterprise.
My goal is to install SQL 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition on the server, how I can do that without interrupting the functionality available on the Sharepoint site, should I proceed to uninstall the SQL 2008R2 Express edition, could I have the 3 instances running on the same machine?
