installing sql server 2000/2005/2008 on laptop and using it as server for other client systems
Posted on 2014-01-18
I have a laptop with following config :
Processor - i3
RAM - 4GB
HDD - 500GB
with windows 7 as the OS.
I need to install sql server 2000/2008 on this machine (L1) and use it to enable another laptop (L2) with same config to access the sql database installed on L1 through an application.
My Question :
Can I use L1 as a server machine. If yes, what OS do I need to install on it or windows 7 will work fine to enable L2 to identify L1 as a sql server and be able to access the database using an application.
An answer or a suggestion in this regard shall be appreciated.
