  • 10.00.xxxx is the SQL Server 2008 release and 10.50.xxxx as Sankar pointed out is the SQL Server 2008 R2 release. 2008 R2 has mainly BI related enhancements. The features can be found here

  • Hi,

    I have a question related to this thread.  I could not successfully restore a database backup in SQL 2008 R2 to my server which has SQL2008 Std. Edition.  Im getting an error message "REstored failed for server <myservername> (Microsoft.SQLserver.SMOExtended)"  Additional Information System.Data.SqlClient.SQlError:  The database was bcked up on a sever running version 10.50.1600.  That version is incompatible with this sever, which is running version 10.00.4064.  Either restore the database on a server that support tis backup or use the backup that is compatible with this server"

    Im also quite consfused as I have other customer databases on SQL2008 R2 and I am able to restore the database.  Do advise.

  • You can not restore SQL Server 2008 R2 backup to a lower version (SQL Server 2008 (no R2)) It's a fact. The only way will be to script the whole database through Tasks/Generate Scripts. Unfortunately, no better way exists.
