Dear Sir,

As title, is it possible or any idea?  Please advise.

My steps as below

     1.Upgrade SQL Express from 2005 to 2008 locally.

     2.Migrate BE2010 R3 Database(configuration/jobs/logs/keys) from 2005 to 2008


BE2010 R3 work with SQL Express on Win2k8 x64.


BE2010 R3 & Websense will put them together on a server with SQL Express 2008.
