Electing to Send SQL
Server Error Reports
and Usage Information
to send SQL Server error reports and usage information to Microsoft.
This is optional. By default, the upgrade process won’t send error
reports to Microsoft. Click Next to display the Upgrade Rules dialog
box, and then click the Show Details button.
The Upgrade Rules dialog box reports the results of a final check
for any problems that might cause the upgrade process to fail. If any
error conditions are found, they’ll be shown in the rules list preceded
with a red X. If all the rules have green check marks, as you can see in
Figure 16, you can proceed with the upgrade. Clicking Next displays
the Ready to Upgrade dialog box, which Figure 17 shows.
The Ready to Upgrade dialog box allows you to see a summary of
the upgrade actions that will be performed. If you need to change
anything, you can use the Back button to page back through the previous dialog boxes. If you don’t need to make any changes, click the
Upgrade button to launch the SQL Server 2012 upgrade process. The
Upgrade Progress dialog box, which you can see in Figure 18, will
show the current action and status of the upgrade process.
After the SQL Server 2012 upgrade operation is finished, the Complete dialog box, shown in Figure 19, will be displayed. At that point,
your SQL Server instance has been upgraded to SQL Server 2012 and
sql server Pro / may 2013
