We have a requirement to upgrade SQL 2012 Express edition(11.0.7493) to SQL Server 2016 Express Edition.
While upgrading SQL Server 2012 Express edition to SQL Server 2016 express edition, it is not allowing to update DB engine, it says " It is not possible to change the sql server features to be upgraded in this release" , I have tried with SQL Server 2016 Express Advanced and Core versions.
Do we have to use any other SQL Server 2016 versions to upgrade the SQL 2012 express edition. we want upgrade to only SQL Server 2016 express edition.
Is it possible to upgrade SQL 2012 Express to SQL 2016 express edition. ?
can you please suggest.
