Hi everyone , question ref licensing if I may. If i install a developer version of SQL 2008 R2 how do I then change that install to a full prod install , with correct paid key etc ? Can I overwrite the license key etc ? Cheers
As far as I know, you will have to run the install and choose to upgrade. The reason is much more than just the license - there are edition differences. For example Developer has the full feature suite as Enterprise, but if you are only running Standard in production, then you will need to update the binaries to 'remove' features.
