  • Hi,

    As I understand the issue, I think you want to create a new blank database for your software. If the new database is in the existing SQL Server instance, you could execute the CREATE DATABASE (Transact-SQL) in SQL Server Management Studio without any more licenses. For more information about  CREATE DATABASE (Transact-SQL),please see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms176061.aspx. However, if you want to setup a new SQL Server instance on another server, you need to pay an addition license for it or install c, which is free. Please download Microsoft® SQL Server 2008 Express Edition Service Pack 1 from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=01af61e6-2f63-4291-bcad-fd500f6027ff&displaylang=en.

    Since the question is a license issue, you can call 1-800-426-9400, Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. (Pacific Time) to speak directly to a Microsoft licensing specialist, and you can get more detail information from there. Worldwide customers can use the Guide to Worldwide Microsoft Licensing Sites to find contact information in their locations.

    If there are any more questions, please let me know.
    Thanks.

    It will be helpful if you can provide some more inputs as what exactly you're trying to do and what exactly you're trying to achieve.

  • I am actually wanted to export a Dell server running SQL Server 2008.  Someone told me that there were limitations on legaly doing this in the EULA, but I wasn't able to find them.

    So that would be the Physical server running a U.S version of SQL server.  The server would essentially be blank accept for blank DB's setup to use our software.

  • From what I have been able to gather the license for SQL Server 2008 is such that it can be legally exported.  For SQL Server 2005 and older the EULA doesn't allow it.
