Hi All, Please help/share your experience.

Here are my requirements.

Current Environment
SQL Server 2008 R2
Development environment
2 node Active/Passive cluster, Currently in standard edition

Need to upgrade to SQL 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition

What are some of the requirements/precautions that I need to go through each server/instances before I upgrade.....and what's the proper way of upgrading to enterprise edition.

Thanks in advance,
SueTons

If its a development environment why are you using standard edition instead of developer edition?

Since its on cluster, I believe developer edition won't work.

Developer edition has all of the same functionality as Enterprise edition. That includes clustering.

Planning to move to production, and might add more nodes in future.
