Hi,

We have SharePoint 2010 sites on multiple servers and would like to implement the global search, where you can use the search on a SharePoint site and get results from other servers in the farm. Do you need SQL Server Enterprise edition, or would the standard edition work?

Thanks.

Hi,
Standard edition of sql server 2008 R2 will do for you.
You just need to enable the services on the farm.
Decide if you want to go with Sharepoint search(by default) or Fast Search (requires sharepoint license).
