Hi I have one query

Is it possible to create DR in sql server 2012 standarad edition for a primary server which is in sql server 2005 enterprise edition.If yes would there be any problem in case of switch back ..

Or Can we upgrade current primary sql server 2005 enterprise edition to sql server 2012 standard edition.

Current primary server 2005 enterprise edition is mostly used for reporting purpose so can i transfere data of current Reportserver database and ReportServerTempDB to Reportserver database and ReportServerTempDB in sql server 2012 standarad edition.

Regards
Anoop

Possible, yes, but a really bad idea. Failover would work, providing you have no Enterprise-only features but you wouldn't be able to fail back.
DR should be the same version, edition, patch, everything as the primary. If you have 2005 primary, use 2005 as the DR.

@gail what about my third query

That suppose i upgraded my pirmary server which is 2005 enterprise edition to 2012 standarad edition . The primary server is used manily for reporting purpose so can I tranfer/upload data stored in ReportServer and ReportServerTempDB databses to corespounding databases in sql server 2012 standarad edition.

You should be able to do that. The usual testing is required for upgrading of course.
