I am upgrading SQL server 2008 to SQL server 2008 R2. I ran the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Upgrade Advisor tool and got the following after running it serveral times:

Each time the process returned errors that indicated the scan did not finish successfully. The process continued to fail around 48% and the only message i get is Deprecated SP. Timeout Expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completeion of the oepration or the server is not responding.

SQL Server 2008 Standard Edition installed on WIndows Server 2008 SP2. Any ideas?

Remove the old installation and install from scratch R2. Make sure you backup all the databases first, including the system ones(however do NOT restore the system ones, they are there just in case you want to check them later).

Here is an article what you  need to consider for this kind of move:

to migrate logins with passwords and their sid from orifinal server use this:

You should also generate the jobs scripts first from the original server.


Other than that, if you still want to go with the upgrade, you can go ahead with it and disregard the advisor see what happens.  You should still backup all your database. first. If the upgrade doesn't work then go back to first suggestion.

Ended up talking to Microsoft on this one. The Deprecated SP error just means that their are features that will not be available in SQL 2008 R2. Microsoft support gave the go ahead to do the upgrade:
