I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have Sys Admins with Admin Rights on a Server. I want to stop/prevent them from installing any instances of SQL on that Server.
Sorry about the dumb initial question.

You mean you need to block access on installing the sql on server for specific group of users?
