(Reason for upgrade is SQL Server 2005 Express Edition extremely limits the reporting functionality of the System Center Essentials 2007 install). So, ran setup.exe SKUUPGRADE-1 All initial tests complete with Success. Then when I get to which elements I want to upgrade, I only get the following options: >Client Components >>Connectivity Components >>Management Tools >>Business Intelligence Development Tools >>Software Development Kit >>SQLXML Client Features >>Legacy Components >Documentation, samples and Sample Databases I’m no SQL expert, but I was expecting options of Databases, Reporting Services, stuff like that. I know that it is supposed to be possible to upgrade along that path. Can anyone point out where I’m going wrong? I’m assuming the fact that SCE 2007 is installed has nothing to do with it. Advice most welcome. Thanks in advance Taw Jackson Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
