Last Modified: 2012-09-04

  I am planning to upgrade my SQLserver 2005 x64 (standard)  to SQLServer 2008 .  Can I perform the upgrade without having  to redo my log shipping.

currently , I have 2 servers (Windows server 2008 R2 64bit)

Server A is primary and Server B contain my database in Stand-by mode

Is there a sequence that I should follow to do the upgrade.

Thanks for your help
