When restoring database, an error will show up, saying that version is incompatible with this server.
TAC I/NET, SmartStruxure Solution
This is usually caused by restoring new SQL database to older version or under different kind of Operation Systems (like restoring a 64 bit database to a 32bit SQL server). Microsoft doesn't like to do this.
There is build number matrix for each SQL server version:
|RTM (Gold, no SP)||SP1||SP2||SP3||SP4|
|SQL Server 2012||11.00.2100.60||11.00.3000|
|SQL Server 2008 R2||10.50.1600.1||10.50.2500||10.50.4000|
|SQL Server 2008||10.00.1600.22||10.00.2531||10.00.4000||10.00.5500|
|SQL Server 2005||9.00.1399.06||9.00.2047||9.00.3042||9.00.4035||9.00.5000|
So check the build number in the error message and download the corresponding version of SQL to restore and be used for I/NET.
