Hello,


I have SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2 Standard Edition installed.  I like to switch to the Enterprise Edition.  I have the license key, but do I need the Enterprise install program that has SP2?

Thanks,

Paul

Just MAKE SURE you take and keep a SAFE FULL Database backup of all your user databases.

Do I need the Enterprise Install with SP2?  How do I handle the SP2, if I just use an install program that does not include the SP2?

You will install SP2 on the top of your SQL 2008 R2 Enterprise.
