Default 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.

Hi David,

We had a same scenario upgrading from 4.1.6 to 5.0.

Our carrier (Vodafone UK) offered to do the upgrade for us.

We made sure we had backups and I'm glad we did as the upgrade from MSDE to SQL 2005 failed and they had to resort to the 2nd method.

It might just have been an issue with our database, certainly the 2nd option seems the safer method.
