.net 4 install to windows 2003 r2 sp2 server

I need to install .net 4 to this server. Currently the only thing this server does is run a database program from Epicor called Vista 8. It's not heavily used.

Is there anything I should consider before installing .net.
The reason I'm installing this is because another vendor will be installing Abra payroll software to this server and .net 4 is requirement.

Thats antoher thing, I'm always uneasy installing additional software to servers. But that's kind of what they are there for, right? I mean, you can't have a server for every application.
Another thing I'd like to do is add a role to this server. Backup Domain controller.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

I have put .NET Framework V4 on several SBS2003 servers in order to run the QuickBooks Server engine. The servers were running properly and fine beforehand and accepted .NET 4 with no issues.

Thanks thinkpads_user. No problems encountered because of the .net install, I did have a scary moment that night though. I thought I do them a favor and free some space on the c drive by moving the pagefile to the d drive.

After a reboot I got connection errors when trying to login or manage the progress database. I had no access to the database.
I put a pagefile back on c and everything was working again.

Thanks again
