SQL 2008 trial version

  • Hi,

    Just need some info regarding SQL 2008 trial version. Currently i installed SQL 2008 trial version as a DB for my Kaseya.

    The question is, if i purchase SQL 2008, should i uninstall the trial version? Or i can just key in the license code?

    Anyone?

    Thanks

  • You can't "key in a licence code" or otherwise switch the trial version to fully registered in a simple step. The actual binaries of the trial version are hard coded to expire after 180 days; you must replace the binaries with versions that aren't timebombed.

    The supported method is to install any full version over-the-top (i.e. as an upgrade) and of course you supply the key as part of the install process. The existing DB's remain intact -- untick the 'hide advanced options' (when you see it) to ensure your existing instance is selected during the upgrade process.
