I often am asked for the “quentessential” one-stop shop guide for upgrading to SQL Server 2008. Since I focus primarily on technical database teams, I normally refer to this guide as the mother of all SQL 2008 upgrade documents. Actually, it is more like a book: 470+ pages and 7 MBs! The link I put above for the document is the Microsoft download site, so you should not have a problem downloading it. You’ll find details on upgrading from 2000 & 2005, SSIS, data mining, in-place upgrades … Happy reading & happy upgrading!
