If I upgrade a SQL server 2016 STD to ENTERPRISE and that server has the following services installed: SSIS and SSRS can I just upgrade the version of the SQL and it will automatically upgrade the SSIS and SSRS on that server or do I need to take additional steps?

Thanks in advance.

All the features installed as part of the one instance, yes, the Edition Upgrade will upgrade them all.

Note, that for SQL Server 2017 and later Reporting Services is a separate installer, so it would be upgraded separately.

  • so no need to uninstall the services and then reinstall right?

    Right. An Edition Upgrade is not a reinstall. It just unlocks the edition features by changing the activation key. Commented Apr 4, 2022 at 14:17
