"Database cannot be started in this edition of SQL Server" error when restoring or Upgrading a Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 database

I followed my own article here for upgrading from SQL Evaluation to SQL Standard.  I had my Dynamics 2013 environment already stood up and unexpectedly already used for development work. After the 'upgrade' steps, the database appeared to be in (suspect) mode and I didn't have a backup (but a checkpoint via hyperv at least).

SharePoint 2007 Single Server Install

Pre-Install There are several things that you must do before you even insert the SharePoint 2007 CD they are:

  • Install Windows 2003 R2 with the latest service pack (2 at time of writing) and all of the latest Windows Updates.
NOTE: Please do not use NewSID to change the SID of the machine if you are using a copy of another VM, this breaks things in SharePoint. My advice is to build Windows from fresh or to use Sysprep if you are using a copy of a VM. (more…)
