I am upgrading from the 2008 edition with a single defalut instance on windows 7. I run the systems configuration checker and no issues were found. Then I select "upgrade from sql..." on the installation tab and it seems to go through the same checks and they all pass. As the installation proceeds I get reporting services conectivitiy errors saying something about compatability level, collation which are bogus cause its a 2008 repoting services db and the collation is the default. So I figure it's because the service isn't running so I start it and the installation proceeds. Next I get a message box which says the name is in use but does not tell you what the name is. Some 2-3 hours later, I get failures at the end because the mssqlserver, default instance is in use. Well of course it is, I'm upgrading. I don't want to create another instance. I want to use the default. I found that I was able to run 2012 and it had the user dbs under the mssqlserver instance. The install seemed to remove most but not all of 2008. So I removed it manually and I think I ran a repair afterwards. I have so far an unresolved issue where although I am able to deploy and run reports using the web page, I am unable to run reportmanager. Data Quality services requires an additional step after the install of clicking on a short-cut to complete the install. Master data services requires that the iis be installed, actually you have to activate the feature, as well as other features because it is a web app and needs iis to run. This creates an additional pain of setup and configuration of the iis. I was getting error 500.21 when trying to run mds and I found the fix was to reinstall the latest framework using aspnet_regiis.exe -i. Distributed Replay is a disappiontment because it is command line only. There is no gui for it. So if you want to replay using a shorter connect and think times to simulate a heavier load, you have to manually edit a file.
It was a good book overall. It did have some misspellings but it didn't take away from the book. I loved Ra & Tesh ending .
