Can I and Should I install SQL Server on SBS2003?
Posted on 2008-06-24
I have a client running a SBS2003 that we supplied, and they have accounting software that can be upgraded to a version that runs with a SQL Server backend. They are keen to upgrade this software, and have asked me to check out their server for possible requirements;
It's going to need some more ram to be sure, and I note that is has the MS SQL Desktop Engine installed;
Is it possible to buy and install SQL Server onto a SBS2003 setup?
Even if it is, should I? Or would it be better to supply a standalone SQL server?
