A client has SQL Server 2008 R2 installed on a Windows 2003 R2 32-bit server.
Under Management in SQL Studio 2008 R2, there is no maintenance plans folder. It is not under Management --> Legacy either, as it would be if there were legacy-mode databases on the server. I am certain this is SQL Server 2008 R2 and not Express. I have checked the version and verified the splash screen when studio starts are not Express. I am logging in as the SQL account sa, and the account does have the sysadmin server role.
Lastly, right clicking on a database in SSMS and navigating to "Tasks" does not show any Maintenance Plan option.
Clearly, I'm missing something, and Google is coming up empty considering the scenario I've outlined. Any ideas? Thanks.
