I have a SQLServer 2008 Enterprise (180 day eval) installation that had expired.
I downloaded and intalled SQLServer 2008 Enterprise (Full version) from Technet
and ran the "Version Upgrade" tool.
The Upgrade tool correctly identified the expired instance and reported that it
had successfully upgraded the expired instance.
The OS processes will start but when I attempt a connect, I get a "Evaluation Period Expired"
Is it possible to do an "upgrade in place" after the 180 day evaluation has expired or do
you have to uninstall then re-install ?
Many Thanks in Advance,
