WSS 3.0: Upgrade SQL Express 2005 to SQL Express 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi forum

    I have a client running WSS 3.0 on SQL Express 2005. They're running out of space (4GB limit) and want to expand the database without having to pay for a full SQL License. SQL Express 2008 R2 offers a 10 GB limit which is adequate for now.

    My question is: can I just download the .exe - double-click and select upgrade and everything will be fine? Or is there anything I should do to make the upgrade happen, e.g. database moves, configuration wizards and the like?


    Your input is much apprieciated.
