  • SBS 2008 Premium (inc SQL) on a single server

    Hi!

    Not having very much experience on Windows world, I was wondering if it is possible to run SBS 2008 Premium with SQL on a single Server?
    I read everywhere one should not install the SBS's SQL server in a domain
    controller, but in a second server, and therefore the Premium has additional
    server installation DVD.

    Also our sw supplier wishes that the SQL server would be V 2005, just to be on the safe side. Can one downgrade the SQL 2008 to 2005 in SBS 2008 Premium?

    I was also wondering how can the price for W2k8 std + SQL server for 20 users be app 2000Ä higher than the price for 20 user SBS 2008 Premium?

    Regards

    Talking about SQL 2005, I just found out SBS 2008 Pre contains
    SQL 2008, and also SQL 2005 servers, for customers who need the 2005.

      Hello There, just installed the sbs2008 premium, it contains a dvd with sql2008, and i can confirm that it will only let you install it if it isin't installed on a DC. But it comes with 2 extra dvd's, sql2005 in x86 and x64 , so no problem with that. Hope i helped you.

      Best Regards

        Can anyone confirm that SQL 2005 32 bit can be installed in the 32 bit WoW subsystem on SBS 2008 ?

        Thanks!

          You can't do it on a single logical server, but you can install the "second" server on your physical server along with SQL and Hyper-V. You can then install your SBS into the virtual server as the first server - or other virtualisation scenarios.
          TIA
