Another SQL instance using SBS 2011 Premium Add-On?
Posted on 2012-12-20
I have a server running SBS 2011 with the premium add-on. I need to create a separate SQL instance on my server for an app I'm installing.
Is this in agreement with the license terms (I'm having trouble decoding the licensing terms), and how would I do this? I did an "add/remove" on SQL 2008 64 bit, selected Add, and it prompts me for the media. I don't have a DVD on this server, but have copied the entire DVD contents to a directory on the drive. Pointing the browse window to the media results in "d:\ is not a valid installation folder." Directing this browse window to the actual DVD on a share off another server results in the same message.
And a side question-- I have two entries in my start menu-- One says "Microsoft SQL Server
2008" with only "SQL Server Installation Center (64-bit)" under it, and another that says "Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2" with all the tools. Why?
I would greatly appreciate all assistance and direction!! TIA!
