Hi, I am testing Server 2008 R2 in a workgroup setting as a file server (eg not in a Domain environment).  I need to use Server 2008 R2 instead of Storage Server because I would also like to use Hyper-V.  These are the only 2 roles I need.  I would also like to use SIS on this file server, but my googling is coming up mixed as to whether or not this is possible.  Does anyone know if it is?  And if so, how do I install it?  I don't see it in the add features wizard.  Some pointers on how to use it if this is indeed possible would also be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.  Hammer8

Thanks.  I tried that: start /wait ocsetup.exe SIS-Limited /quiet /norestart, but don't see anything new installed so that I can configure or manage SIS....

I would expect that it's a limited SIS install that doesn't present a UI and is designed as a component for other services, like DPM.

Yes, I can install WSS instead of Server 2008, but I would like to also have Hyper-V on the same server...

The only thing I can suggest if you really want SIS is to run Windows 2008 R2 or Hyper-V Servr 2008 R2 on the hardware, and run WSS in a VM.

If anyone has thoughts on how to install WSS as a Hyper-V client, please help!

The reason why I need to install Server 2008 R2 first (and not WSS directly) is because on Technet, that's how WSS is distributed (AFAIK).
