    I'm planning on migrating everything from Server 2003R2 + SQL Server 2005 to Server 2008R2 + SQL Server 2008R2, from a couple of posts back am i barking up the wrong tree here? i assumed everything was supported except for 64bit clients as of the sprint release?

    I've got the new SQL 2008R2 server running on windows 2008R2 and im running a couple of databases off it already, just waiting till the June half term to move everything sims related across, but need to know if it's fully compatible!

    SQL 2k8 R2 is not supported by Capita, and no plans have been revealed yet. I think a couple of people are using it though.

    EDIT: ref - sql 2008

    Hi Guys
    Thank you to all who responded. I ran into only one problem during the installation. I put the 64 bit edition of Windows on the server but then found unfortunatly, that I did not have the 64 bit installer for SQl express 2005 -only the 32 bit edition. I have tried just downloading it from Microsoft but of course that just installs a stupid default instance name and there doesn't seem to be a way to change it.
    Does anyone have a copy of the Capita SQL server express 2005 64 bit installer that they could lend me?????? I could really do with this so any help would be very gratefully appriciated!

    Cheers!
