    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.
    Reza Alirezaei’s Blog Did you upgrade your SQL Server 2k8 RC0 to RTM? Don’t!

    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.
