Let me make a couple of questions that made me confused alot.
(1) We have some softwares that only compatible with SQL 2008, unfortunately we only can purchased SQL 2012 license in the market.
My first quetion is, can we just go ahead to upgrade to SQL 2012 and set compatibility level to SQL 2008 for those database that only compatible with SQL2008 as I mentioned before?
(2) We purchased SQL 2012 license from our vendor. But they did not provide any license key and installation CD/DVD. What they gave us are just license agreement documents and Microsoft Open License Purchase Order Confirmation (Authorization Number and 8 digit of License Number are inside in that paper - I am sure this should not be SQL license key). The licnese should appears in our VLC user centre, but when it says there is no product key needed for this product.
My second question is, Where can I get our SQL2012 license key? Is that OK just downloading evaluation version from Microsoft Website?
Thank in advance
