    We are on SQL 2008r2 and not planning to upgrade for a while.

    I believe there is a requirement to migrate to SQL 2012 relatively soon, last time I checked.

    I don't know about everyone @bossman - but i'm sure not ready!
    I'm not aware of that requirement. I don't need those reports, however, but i guess Exams users will ...?

    The Technical Roadmap only mentions this in terms of general support:
    Technical Roadmap • Upcoming Software Retirements
    • SQL2008 - Last support release: Summer 2014
    • SQL2008 R2 - Last support release: Autumn 2014

    • New Software Support
    • Windows Server 2012 R2 - Supported from: Spring 2014
    • Office 2013 - Supported from: Spring 2014
    • SQL2014 - Supported from: Autumn 2014
    So if you're on SQL 2008 you need to panic now, if you're on SQL 2008 R2 you got 1 life left

    You made me panic - but i just checked and i'm on R2, phew.

    @vyperz:

    SQL 2012 will suffice but as SQL 2014 has been released you may as well go with that and it will save you time in the long run, my only regrets is that I don't have a Windows server 2012 license as yet so it will have to remain on our 2008R2 enterprise server!

    Didn't mean to startle anyone but been under the cosh these past few weeks as I am a technician down plus all the strategic planning to do as with all the rest of the paperwork so I thought I needed to get it right first time if you know what I mean.

    @vikpaw:

    haha! just keeping you on your toes
    Hope all is well with you my good friend

    You're in luck.

    Support for SQL2008 and 2008R2 has been extended to include the Spring 2015 release.

    See thread: Latest Technical Roadmap

    I have a whole shed load of new intervention strategy templates to make - I really want to get the update to use the aspect replacement feature. Not sure how long I will be able to wait.

    so far so good. Upgrade went fine, tested a few of workstations and they upgraded nicely... I feel suspicious to be quite honest
