SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Evaluation

by Randomguy232   Last Updated August 17, 2018 10:06 AM

Was hoping someone could assist me on finding the SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Evaluation?

I am trying to create a test environment for a SharePoint migration, and part of the step is from WSS 3.0 to SharePoint 2010. However, SharePoint 2010 comes with SQL Server 2008 R2 Express and is limited to 4GB Database size. I tried the "Evaluation" version of it through the upgrade process and it doesn't remove that restriction. I also tried regular SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Evaluation and it worked, however SharePoint requires R2.

Does anyone know any information?

Thank you.
