Hi All,

Can anyone please let me know how many database that needs to be created separately by WSS 3.0 ?

I got confused myself here, because my understanding is that the following DB needs to be created as separate DB:

1. CA site - which stores the Configuration Database for all of the Site Collections.
2. Search DB indexer
3. WSS_Content - which stores all o the Infopath XML and its attachments.
4. what else... ?

your help would be greatly appreciated here.

Thanks

Harish, thanks for the reply.

So in this case of WSS 3.0 which of the database on the list can be installed or migrated to SQL Server 2005 ?

I'm in the process of migrating the DB server but somehow I got stuck of determining which database can only resides with the SQL express edition 2005 and which one is or can be run on separate SQL server.

WSS 3.0 installed with the Basic Installation or with the Advanced Installation followed by the Single Server option.The SQL Server 2005 version installed is officially called the "Windows Internal Database". It is an embedded version of SQL Server 2005 Express.

IT - to answer your question, ALL SharePoint databases can run in the full version.  None of them are specific to Express.
