Is there a location somewhere in a 2005 SQL Server instance where it is indicated if the instance is running under a licensed or evaluation copy? Thanks for everyone there to help.

select @@version


That will only provide you with the Version/Edition of the running SQL instance. As of SQL 2005 the licensing info is no longer stored anywhere as it was up to SQL 2000. All you need now is the required paperwork from Microsoft that proves you have the required License. In other words, if you are audited, you need to produce the license info for each 2005+ SQL server installation.

IF it's eval edition, you can get info here: http://mangalpardeshi.blogspot.com/2009/05/expiration-date-of-sql-server.html

If you want to query each server, I'd think that eval edition had a note in the @@version that it was the version installed. It's also probably in the registry somewhere.

Serverproperty is supposed to return this: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms174396%28SQL.90%29.aspx

I would rely on the Serverproperty function. It will return the various editions (standard, enterprise, eval)
