How many installations can it handle?

Hello,

We currently have SQL Server 2000. With one disc, we can install it on our dedicated server, and our web server laptops.

We're considering upgrading to SQL Server 2005. Will the disc allow installation on multiple boxes, or will it know it's been installed and say "Sorry, can't install again"?

Thanks,

Steve

The disc itself can be used on as many installs as you desire.  But if you don't have a license for each installation then you will be violating the license agreement.
