Installed SQL 2008 R2 BASE showing as RTM is this dictated by the actual version or the product key on installation.

Need to know if i have picked up the wrong version of SQL or the supplied key is incorrect.

Product key determines the edition of the installation (developer edition, enterprise edition etc.) RTM is the version number. Since you have already installed the RTM version,, you can install the service packs to bring it up to the latest version. Take a look at this page: in the section SQL Server 2008 R2 version information. You can download SP2 from Microsoft
