hello All,
I need experts advised who have already started to work on sql serevr 2012, i came across an article in MSDN stating that "90 compatibility level and upgrade from version 90 (SQL Server 2005 Database Engine" is DEPRECATED and "Compatibility levels are only available for the last two versions." At my work we have Sql Server 2k5 and we are planning to go to sql server 2012 soon, does that mean i need to upgrade it to 2008 or 2008R2 and the 2012? how shall we do it? any idea guys...?

you can upgrade from SQL Server 2005 Ent edition directly to SQL Server 2012 Ent edition, but the SQL Server 2005 instance will need to be at service pack 4.
