Install System Center Essentials SCE 2007 on Windows 2008 Standard

Hi

Can you install SCE 2007 on a brand new windows 2008 server standard box?

It is a fresh install out of the box, no SQL, nothing. I would like to use the built in MSDE install, not full fledged SQL if possible.

I cannot find any documentation saying this can be installed.

This is correct. SQL Server Reporting Service must be installed local on the management server even if SQL is installed on a different machine.

Check the "Before you begin" list on

Essentials SP1 is supported on Win2008 but there are a few hotfixes that you need to apply first. You find information is this KB;

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/953141

No support for MSDE and SQL2005 needs to be SP2 when you run Essentials on Win2008

When i run the install it says "Local SQL Reporting Service" must be installed, is this correct and what does this mean?
