Can't run SQL 2008 Upgrade Advisor


  • Hi guru,

    I am trying to run SQL 2008 Upgrade Advisor on my SQL server 2005 instance but the upgrade advisor can't validate the instance name because it has 20 charactors long. Is this true the upgrade advisor can only validate instance name with 16 charactors long?

    I did not have any issues when running sql 2012 upgrade advisor on this same sql 2005 instance.

    Please help.
