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.
