Even though SBS 2011 with Premium Add-On comes with an additional 2008 license, is it required?

Can I run all the standard SBS installations PLUS have the SQL Server running on the same server?

I dont think additional license required. also check with MS licensing site. If you are using on single server then, additional license for SQL is not required. You can have SQL server running on the same server, if your database traffic is merely less .

Just to clarify my question, I know the license is available... its more of a technical issue of, will SBS 2011 Premium Add-On allow me to install the SQL Server on the same physical machine as the file/print, Exchange, etc...

Database is relatively light use...

You can install sql server on your sbs server, but i don't recommend installing it on it if its your DC, exchange and file server. Because later on down if you have problems with your database and you have to take the server offline. Then, your end users will suffer with no service for email ect.
