Share SQL Server
« on: April 25, 2009, 03:47:35 PM »
Any way to share SQL server for other apps as well?  I'm running the SBS 4 version on SBS2003.  Avast seems to be running well.

Ignore above - Just had to update SQL Server to SP2.

I believe you can run anything else that you want... to a point. The free edition (express) has limits.

Also, I believe that SQL 2005 is up to service pack 3 now.
For generic computer (not avast) problems, you can also visit my forum for help:

As far as I know SBS 2003 is delivered with a Full version of SQL server 2005.

best is to install with  named instances so there are seperate databases for the programs instead of all sharing the same db with the problems of clutching up tables
