View Full Version : How difficult is it to install an Win2k SQL server?
11-18-2004, 02:51 PM
One of my users wants to run a list serve for this group that he is in charge of (approximately 2500 users). He found this software (http://www.lyris.com/products/listmanager/) that he wants to use, however the tech specs require a SQL server. We have a Win2k server here but I do not want to install SQL on it for fear of breaking it, so I would probably just install it on a WinXP Pro box. Does anyone have any knowledge of installing and maintaining a Windows 2000 SQL server?
Thanks in advance.

Installation ir rather easy, it's configuring the databases that is a bit challenging.
However, if I remember correctly, you can't install SQL Server on a workstation - it needs to be a Windows server version. There's a client version of SQL you can install on a workstation, but it probably won't have the testicular fortitude to handle 2500 users.

Thanks Jeff I'll research it to see if it is indeed necessary to build a Windows server in order to run the SQL server. If so, then the price tag itself will make it not an option. That would make the decision a lot easier.
You the man.
