Currently we are upgrading our SQL Server 2000 box to 2008 R2 Enterprise. However, one of the apps locks itself to the Standard edition and will not install to Enterprise (without an additional 100K). With SQL Server Enterprise you can install
multiple instances of SQL Server without additional licensing--my question is, can one of the instances be a downgraded Standard version installation from the SQL Server Enterprise license, or do we have to get an additional SQL Server Standard license for
the same box?
All licenses we are looking at moving to are SQL 2008 R2 processor licenses.
