We are rolling out Office 365 to a number of schools. As part of this process we want to deploy Dirsync. Each school typically has a single server which acts as a domain controller, file server, printer server etc. Often, they also have SQL Express already installed in order to support MDT, WSUS and other applications.
Can anyone advise whether is it possible to install Dirsync onto a DC with a pre-existing SQL Server Express installation? Will it fail because there is an existing SQL Server installation, or will it just add it's own database on top of the others.
I have read many articles about installing it on systems with full-fat SQL Server installed, but opinions regarding the Express release seem ambiguous.
Thanks for your help.
