At my office we are planning on moving from a msdn engine for our database to a full fledge
I got a few questions thou. We are looking at getting a dell server, but i dont know if a single Dual Core P4 Processor or a Dual Xeon would be best.
Here is what the Sql Server will need to run:
A database of over 50,000 Items.. maximum will be around 140,000 Items.. with atleast 3 machines being connected to the MsSql server for most of the day.
also i am looking at setting up Active Directory on this same machine..
I have been looking for guides on building a Mssql machine, but havent come across much.
So far the Dual core P4 is:
Intel 830D 3GHZ
Raid 1 with 2 160GB harddrives
Tape Backup drive
Dual Gigabite nics
Windows 2003 Small Business Server Premium Edition.
And the Dual Xeon is the same above specs..
Just 2 Xeon 2.8 processors.
One more question:
I know Windows 2003 Small Business Server Premium comes with MSSQL, but with how many MSSQL CALS it comes with?
