I have a production network application which uses an SQL 2008 Standard Server.
I am planning moving the DB to the SQL Server 2012 SP1.
Installing the Evaluation version (180days) of SQL Server 2012 SP1 will I be able to provide a License Key and activate it to Standard version?
or should I run again all the setup process using the purchased ISO image?
I would like to point out that this is a production SQL Server and I would like to avoid the back and forth in case that the evaluation version cannot be activated to permanent version.
Thanks in advance,
