    This link shows you should not upgrade SQL on SBS 2008

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...8WS.10%29.aspx

    Do not upgrade the instance of SQL Server 2005 Express that is installed on the server running Windows SBS 2008 for monitoring (SBSMONITORING), and do not move the database to the SQL Server Standard Edition that is included in Windows SBS 2008 Premium. These types of migration are not supported.
