How to install SQL 2008 Log and Data on seperate servers?

macpiano asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Seems like this would be documented all over the place but it is not easily found. I have 3 servers and I want to put SQL itself on the OS server, data on another, and log on a 3rd. When it asks for these locations it wants a drive letter. Obviously another server is not going to do that unless I persistently map a drive to that other server on startup.

What is the correct syntax to hit the other server and does it have to have a named folder on the 2nd and 3rd server?
