I am currently using SQL Server 2005 version 9.00.1399.00 and want to upgrade to SP3, can I upgrade directly to SP3 with no previous service packs or are there any particular prerequisites?

Moving a Copy of SQL Report Server 2005 and Upgrade to 2008

  
Hello, We have SQL 2005 Report Server in a Windows 2003 64 bit server box. We want to create a copy of this report server database somewhere in the domain, so that we can access it for a different purpose. My question is, will there be any complications with this? I'm thinking about the encryption key that's needed to access the database. If we are successful with this, we might also want to upgrade to SQL 2008. Thanks for your help,   Elizabeth K.

PAGEIOLATCH_SH causing long delays after upgrade to SQLSERVER 2005

  
Some processes in our PeopeSoft system are running extremely long after upgrading from SQLSERVER 2000 to SQLSERVER 2005 SP4. Processes that use to run in 15 minutes now take 4 hours to run. Some processes run in the same amount of time and don't seem to be affected by the upgrade. When I examine the long running processes in Activity Monitor I see the wait type showing up as PAGEIOLATCH_SH. Any ideas as to what might be going on? Our SQLSERVER implementation is a standard install. What should we be looking at to improve the situation?

2005 Enterprise upgrade to 2008 Standard?

  
We are currently running 2005 Enterprise Edition. Is it possible to move the database to 2008 Standard Edition?  

Upgrade SQL 2005 standard Runtime edition to SQL 2005 standard edition full version

  
We have a MS SQL 2005 standard edition runtime license. The SQL Server Runtime license is a license that lets an independent software vendor (ISV) embed the complete SQL Server code into a solution for use only by the ISV application. The customers of the ISV cannot use this SQL Server product to run other applications or to develop new applications, databases, or tables. Now we want to add a new database to the SQL. We know that we have to buy a full version of SQL 2008 standard edition. But the question is: How can we add a new database to the existing SQL. Do we have to uninstall SQL runtime license and install the full version and migrate the existing databse or can we change the key and add new databases to the SQL server?

Upgrade from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008 cause problems with MSDTC

  
We have recently upgraded our server from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008.  Previously we were running our asp.net application using MSDTC with no problems. Since we upgraded, we are encountering problems that seem to relate to Multiple Active Result Sets (MARS).  The error we receive is: "There is already an open DataReader associated with this Command which must be closed first" when we try and perform a save process.  To fix this problem we added MultipleActiveResultSets=True to the connection string.  We now get the error: "The transaction operation cannot be performed because there are pending requests working on this transaction." Within the transaction scope we save to a table and then load from the same table.  Our stack trace indicates this is where the first error occurs.  Again, this transaction worked using SQL Server 2005. If we do not use MSDTC by putting Enlist=false in the connection string, the request works. We are really stumped as to what to do.  We would prefer not to have to role back to SQL Server 2005 and would also prefer not to have to have sweeping code changes in our application.  We have test MSDTC by using DTC ping on our servers and it works. Your help is greatly needed and would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Steve and Nilesh

Your upgrade is blocked.. when adding components to SQL 2005 Standard Edition SP1

  
Name: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Tools Hello, I am having a problem when trying to add the Client Components to an existing installation of SQL 2005 Standard Edition SP1 running on Windows 2003 Standard. The server was originally built with SQL 2005 Standard Edition and had SP1 installed at a later date. I am using the CD that SQL was originally installed with which is not a service packed copy of SQL. The reason given when clicking the details button is as follows: Reason: Your upgrade is blocked. For more information about upgrade support, see the "Version and Edition Upgrades" and "Hardware and Software Requirements" topics in SQL Server 2005 Setup Help or SQL Server 2005 Books Online. Build version check: Your upgrade is blocked because the existing component is a later version than the version you are trying to upgrade to. To modify an existing SQL Server component, go to Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel, select the component you would like to modify, and then click Change/Remove. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Regards Steve

Slow sql-server after upgrade from SQL-Server 2005 x64 standard to SQL-Server 2008 R2 x64 enterprise

  

We moved our databases to new hardware today (using copy database wizard)

 

The new hardware should be better than the old one.

We went from 28 GB ram to 128 GB.

We went from 16 cores to 32 cores (with even more cache etc.). We also moved from external SAN with 40 disks to intern disks (8 Samsung SS805 100gb ssd slc)

                             According to our own metrics we could get twice the IO using IO m

Upgrade from SQL Server 9.0.2047 (Express 2005 SP1 I believe) to SP3

  

I am running the version of SQL I listed in the title and like I said, I believe it is SQL Express 2005 SP1 and I just want to upgrade to SP3.  I tried installing it via Microsoft Update, but that failed without giving me any detail as to why.  When I try to run the SQL Exp 2005 SP3 installer (SQLEXPR.EXE) it just acts like it is going to install a new instance of it.

I saw a post about an unattended upgrade, but frankly I'm not very familiar with that and not really comfortable with doing it.  Is there not an installer I can run that will just upgrade to SP3?

Thanks to anyone who can provide some assistance for me, I appreciate it.


SSRS 2005 to 2008 upgrade: exporting to .PDF does not produce the same result

  

We have recently converted .rdl SSRS 2005 files to SSRS 2008 .rdl files. We do not have SSRS 2008 R2, we are working with the  first release. We are seeing issues when exporing a report to .pdf format:

1) when rendered in HTML, the function that displays page numbers (ie:page 1 of 2) for the report are correct. The standard function "Globals!TotalPages" is used to get the count of pages. We previewed a report in html in reports manager that had 1777 pages. when the report is exported to .pdf the last page displays page 1777 of 1816, even though there is no more pages beyond 1777.

2)When rendering the report in html a value is shown as "Caretaker1" but when exporting to adobe .pdf version 9.3, the same value is shown as "Caretaker2".

3)   One of our issues is
