Can't find an answer to this question. Microsoft transferred me 7 times before finally hanging up on me. CDW didn't know there was a SQL 2008 version (although the website sells it). ............SO............ Can I Install Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition for Small Business on Server 2012 Essentials?
Please don't give me the IO line of not having SQL on a DC. I don't think it will be an issue seeing that this will be on a DC with 10 users and only 5 users will have SQL access, it's an internal database powering a point of sale system at a local heating and cooling company. If we had 100 users all hitting one DC that also had SQL running, then yes I suppose there could be a resource issue, but as small of an office as this is, I don't think I'd have an issue, Please correct me if I'm wrong though.
So regardless...Can I Install Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition for Small Business on Server 2012 Essentials?
