Hi to every one need reply soon
1. what are the all possible ways to upgrade sqlserver 2005 work group edition into sql server standard edition.
If you want to do an in place upgrade, WorkGroup to Standard is a valid upgrade, so you can simply run the MSI for Standard.http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143393.aspx
2. can we uninstall workgroupediton 2005 after taking database backup and install sql server standard editon 2005 and after installing standard can we restore the backup of database of workgroup editon in to newly installed standard edition sqlserver 2005
yes, you can backup the databases and restore them on the new instance.
you would not want to try to restore the system databases, but instead either recreate or script out any logins, linked servers, certificates, and database master keys on the existing server, and run the scripts on the new one
similarly , any jobs in the msdb database need to be either recreated or scripted out as well.
