I have 10 sql server instance in one single node cluster, 2 of them has been upgraded to sp4, the rest 8 is sp2. I uninstalled one of sql server instance, and recreate a new instance.
During sql server 2005 setup system configuration check, I got a message
" Edition Change Check (Warning)
To change an existing instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 to a different edition of SQL Server 2005, you must run SQL Server 2005 Setup from the command prompt and include the SKUUPGRADE=1 parameter."
I check the forum, and got this thread:
I would like to know:
is it true that we have to install all instance before we do patch? otherwise, we will get the above message when try to install new instance?
If I ignore the warning, continue the install, what possible result will get? I can not try in my environment, since I do not want to mess up with the rest 9 instance.
