    Angry Pre-release version of SQL!

    Back in April, I had SIMS and Sage support come in and load their respective software on 2 new bladeservers. None of us realised at the time (it came to light when a third party tech support team looked at some logs) that the SQL 2008 CD that I had was release candidate. I now need to upgrade both servers to released version of SQL. Anyone any tips on doing this? MS tech suggest complete uninstall and reinstall.

    eeep, scary practices there. I would also recommend disconnecting the databases, uninstalling the RC then installing the RTM and reconnecting the databases.

    A direct upgrade is begging for trouble.

    Thanks, Synack. I'd my suspicions that a complete uninstall would be best. Will also contact SIMS and our Sage support for their view on their own apps.
