I'm new to SQL so the question may be dumb.
I have a test lab that consist of 1 SQL Server 2008 SP2 CU7 downloaded from MSDN subscription. As this SQL server wasn't used quite frequently and it become expired about few days ago. Now I have reatil (again from MSDN subscription) SQL Server 2008
R2 Std. As the current SQL server is expired I cannot perform update from 2008 to 2008 R2.
By using this regtrick: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971268 I can upgrade shared tools only, but not SQL Server engine.
Is there a way to upgrade expired SQL 2008 to a 2008R2? Thanks in advance!
