What SQL Native Client Version is currently installed?

September 24, 2012 Jordansphere MS SQL

Scenario: I want to move vCenter DB from the bundled SQL 2005 express to a standalone SQL 2008.  The SQL Native Client required for the upgrade is 10.0

 

To check what version you have running (on SQL 2005):

Run regedit -> Computer->HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Microsoft SQL Native Client/Current Version.

 

As you see from the screenshot I am currently running 9.0.x so I will need to upgrade this during the migration

 

This is slightly different in SQL 2008 but same principles apply.

MS SQL Native Client,
