Good afternoon

I have a database sitting on a SQL Server 2008 installation (10.50.1600). I have a need to take a backup copy of this database and restore it to a different SQL Server 2008 installation (10.0.5512), but when I try to do so using the Restore Database wizard I get the following error:

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: The database was backed up on a server running version 10.50.1600. That version is incompatible with this server, which is running version 10.00.5512. Either restore the database on a server that supports the backup, or use a backup that is compatible with this server. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)


Is there a standard upgrade path that would get me from 10.00.5512 to 10.50.1600, and if so can someone tell me what it is? Alternatively, is it possible to back the database up in such a way as to be able to use that backup on the 10.0.5512 box?

TIA

Hello,

I think you're trying to restore into SQL Server 2008, the database was backed up in SQL Server 2008 R2.

Have a look at the build numbers here:-

http://www.sqlteam.com/article/sql-server-versions

You cannot restore a backup from a more recent version of SQL into an older version.

If your backup has come from a 10.50.x version that's SQL 2008R2. So you'll only be able to restore that on 2008R2 instance or later (2012).

If you only need the structure of the database, i.e. not the data, then you could generate scripts from the 10.50.x instance to create the objects on the older 10.0.x instance.

Hope that helps somewhat.

No, sadly I need to have the data as well as the structure. I'm trying to restore the database so that I can run the software that it supports in a development environment and therefore test out the software upgrade path in a "safe" environment.

That being the case then, is there nothing I can do except upgrade 10.0.5512 to 10.50.1600 or greater?

Depending on the size of the database you may well be able to get it restored on a SQL2008R2 express edition. That's limited to 10GB sized DB's though.

That's a decent shout, but I think I'd prefer to get the dev server upgraded so that it's running at least the same version of SQL 2008 as the live server, to avoid this happening again in the future.

Yes that's your best bet. You can probably do an in-place upgrade from your 2008 instance to 2008R2. That's not to say i'd recommend it....

You think there'd be an issue with doing so?

I usually prefer to a fresh install to be honest. Everyone is different...

Doing a side by side install you can keep the current instance running serving those that need it.
