We are planning to move our sde 9.3.1/SQL Server 200 database to 10/SQL Server 2008 R2

We are moving a copy of the existing Database to a new SQL 2008 R2. The database will then be upgraded running the Upgrade Geodatabase tool.

Although, we are using Direct Connections I was advised to install the ArcSDE software to have access to the log files for troubleshooting.

I have two questions:

1. On which point of the upgrade I install the software. I am thinking of installing if after running the Upgrade Geodatabase tool so I can test the commnad line works. Is this correct?

2. I believe I do not have to Authorise ArcSDE. Is this correct?
