In Place upgrade from MSDE to SQL 2005 Express
 
Hi Everyone,

Sorry if this has already been posted, but i can't find this specific scenario anywhere and would like to check the procedure.

I have a customer running BES 4.1.6 and i am upgrading them to BES 5.0.3. (By way of BES 4.1.7)

Unfortunately BES 5.0.3 does not support MSDE so i need to update this to SQL 2005 Express.

Should i just do an in-place upgrade of MSDE to SQL 2005 or should i backup the database, uninstall MSDE, install SQL 2005 run createdb and then restore the database.


Then upgrade to BES 5.0.3, or should i upgrade to BES 5.0.2 which supports MSDE, then do the SQL Upgrade then install SP3?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

David

usually you can just inplace upgrade to SQL with out issue

make sure you stop all bes services before doing it.
