SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition for Small Business

    Question

  • Hello everyone.

    I have a brand new server, which will be a stand-alone server running a database and an application. This single server will be the only server in the solution.

    I have:

    SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition for Small Business

    and

    Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard

    When i attempt to install SQL, I get an error message stating that the OS is not supported. 

    I found a technical paper from Microsoft stating the following:

    SQL 2008 R2 Standard for Small Business is supported for installation in a small business domain, 
    which includes installing on one of the following Windows Server® 2008 R2 editions:

      • Windows® Small Business Server 2011
      • Windows Server® 2008 R2 Standard (must be configured in a 
        small business domain configuration). To install this product on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard edition, the server must be joined to a Small Business Server 2008 R2 domain or a domain that has Active Directory configured in the following way:
        • It must be joined to a domain where a single server in the domain must contain all the flexible single master operations (FSMO) roles and is the root of the Active Directory forest,
        • The domain cannot have trust relationships with any other domains,
        • The domain cannot have any child domains, and
        • The sum of user and device licenses in the domain cannot exceed 75.
        • The customer may not run instances of the server software, separately licensed or otherwise, at the same time in another operating system environment within the same domain..

    With my situation, will I be able to run my setup successfully?

  • Hi,

    No this will not work. You need to install it on a stand alone Windows® Small Business Server 2011 or on a Windows Server® 2008 R2 Standard that is a member of a Small Business Server 2008 domain or a domain that meets the requirements listed above.
