Hello experts. I'm tasked with upgrading several 2008 instances. But some of them I cannot access. The sa password is not known and my account doesn't exist in the instance. I AM in the local admin Windows group.
The techniques I have found require stopping the instance and running it in single-user mode. But I can't risk an outage in these production instances.
Does anyone know of a better method that will allow the instance to be up?
Thanks for any tips.
