I have been given a list of all corporate owned MS SQL Server instances for risk assessment purposes, I was hoping it would detail version, i.e 2000, 2005, 2008, 2012 etc. However by instance version it statues v9, 10, 105 etc. Is there anyway to link those to the actual version of the product?

Thanks, are any of the older version of SQL out of support now? What do they still patch? What versions have been cut off from support/patches?

Sorry for posting just links, but there's no point in my rewriting it when it's been written before :)

Thanks, What does extended support actually mean above and beyond mainstream support? How do you get mainstream support, and why would you pay for it? What exactly does it give you?

I don't know. That would be a different question to post. I am not familiar with Microsofts support.

Too late to offer the useful URL's already supplied - but I'm pleased you are doing such a risk assessment.

One tip I would offer is that, in addition to the sql sever version issues already mentioned, is you should also be looking at the hardware (e.g. age, vendor, warranty) and the operating systems each sql server is depending on. Combinations of these factors may influence levels of risk and help focus on upgrade/replacement recommendations.

Good luck with this
