Steve,

Does this link contradict you?

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms175158.aspx

A quote from it:

"Database snapshots are available only in SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition and later versions."

Unsure

Steve,
Here is were I got my answer: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190677.aspx

SQL Server 2008 Books Online (December 2008)
Creating a Database Snapshot

This topic describes some best practices for creating database snapshots and provides a link to the procedure for creating them.

Any user who can create a database can create a database snapshot.

Important:
Database snapshots, introduced in SQL Server 2005, are available only in the Enterprise editions of SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008.

Thanks,
Ben

Yes, seems to be some conflicting information in BOL.

However, the Developers Edition is actually the Enterprise Edition with different licensing. Therefore all the features of the Enterprise Edition are available in the Developer Edition.

Cool

Thanks, that is good information to have. I was just curious to know if that was the correct answer. 77% had it correct so now I know.

Hello Steve,

Now this question in particular is going to create ALOT of debate.
1.I tried to do some reading before I could answer the question, and what I came up with was stated "Important:
Database snapshots, introduced in SQL Server 2005, are available only in the Enterprise editions of SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008. " [color=#4B0082][/color]
from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190677.aspx .
What's going on?

2.And was it meant to be "In which editions of SQL Server 2008 [color=#8B0000]CAN USE[/b[/color]]create database snapshots?" or was it meant to be "In which editions of SQL Server 2008 [color=#8B0000][b]"CAN USERS"[/color] create database snapshots?" . May be that's where the answer lies

The typo is being fixed.

The developer's edition is Enterprise with different licensing. It includes all features so you can build applications with them. Developer's Edition cannot be deployed to a production environment, so it isn't often listed with the editions.
