Good day experts,

At my new job we have a sql 2014 developer edition in production and its a clustered instance.We also have a licensed standard edition on the Dev environment.I disagree with this setup of running developer edition in production.My question is : 1. can i downgrade the developer to standard so that i run licensed standard in production.

Thanks

Does the database use any 'Enterprise' features?

Technically, yes, you can do it. Basically, you are welcome to pay, anytime.
But as Phil mentioned, you should check if you use any enterprise feature. If yes, you need a alternative solution before upgrade to avoid some 'surprise'

Keep in mind that Developer edition is not licensed for production usage. So by using it in prod, you're at risk of audits hitting you with a lot of fines.

And if I remember correctly, you may have to uninstall and reinstall to get to standard edition.

Cool

afaik, you're correct. Developer to Enterprise is a key change, other editions it's an uninstall/reinstall.

You mentioned it was clustered, Standard has a limitation on the number of nodes in the cluster so if it's a two nodes it's fine but any more and you need to be on Enterprise.
