Upgrades are an essential part of any development process. Upgrading Microsoft SQL Server database is widely considered a complex process. In order for an upgrade to be successful, it should involve planning and preparation stages. There are upgrade issues that can be foreseen as well as those that cannot be foreseen, but that may effect the process. Of course, the goal of upgrading SQL Server is to enhance its performance and operation.
