Visual Studio 2010 – Upgrade from RTM to SP1


Just as yourself, got a lot to do, but occasionally get pulled back in.


SQL Server 2008-R2 Upgrade

My manager has signed us up to upgrade all SQL Servers to the most recent version, 2016. Or at minimum the version that precedes the latest; btw, that is 2014.

The SQL Instance that I am looking at currently is v2008-R2 and the OS is 2008/R2.

That latest SQL Server supported on Windows 2008-R2 is SQL Server 2014.
