  • 1. Several instances of SQL Server Standard Edition on a big server
    Environment: - Intel (32bit) based server with 8 CPUs and 6 GB of RAM - Server OS: Windows 2003 Enterprise We want to run two instances of SQL Server 2000 Standard Edition Questions: (1)Is it possible to configure the two instances in a way that instance 1 will use the processors 0,1,2,3 and instance 2 will use processor 4,5,6,7? Or will both instances only see the first 4 processors because of the Standard Edition's restriction to 4 CPUs? (2)Will the two instances be able to use 2 GB of physical memory each simultaniously? (with PAE enabled) Or will both instances have to share 2 GB (or maybe 3 GB with the 3GB switch set) as we are running on a 32bit environment? Thanks in advance Christoph

  • 4. SQL Server failed to install on every server OS...
    try starting with an MSDE SP3 installation. SP3 lets you make a fresh install (read the documentation) and it has the advantage of including up to date files. then try and upgrade to regular Sql Server. also check out the post from Vickrank Dallwale of 27-08-2003 22:56 in this newsgroup "Vicki" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > wrote in message news:12e1301c38449$0d22f660$ XXXX@XXXXX.COM ... > SQL Server has failed to install on every server > operating system I have tried....I tried Win 2003, Win > 2000 and Win NT....I did the recommended fresh install > from several sources and reformatted the drive for each > OS and still get the same result.

Server Component is not supported on Windows XP Pro

PLEASE help me here ...

I have tried to install the database server component 
from MS Sql Server 2000 Enterprise Edition and the setup 
program reports "Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Enterprise 
Edition server component is not supported on this 
operating system. Only client components will be 
available for installation."

What a lot of nonsense. I searched and found several 
similar problems reported. Is there anyone out there who 
knows how to solve this. Is the problem SP related (I 
have all my os SPs installed),is it services related - 
all mine seem ok ....

... ANYBODY ??????

1.Windows XP Pro Repaired - SQL Server Enterprise Manager Not Working

Hi all,

I had to repair Windows XP Pro due to some corruption.  After doing so
everything seems the same on the node that had Enterprise Manager on
it, however, I am unable to register or discover the database node.

Network is the same and still working properly.  Not sure why I am
unable to see SQL Server on the database node now when everything is
the same as before the Windows XP Pro OS rebuild.


2.How to install SQL7 Server components on XP Pro

I'm unable to install SQL Server 7.0 on a Windows XP Professional

3.Can't install Server Component on XP Pro

Help! I'm trying to install SQL Server 7.0 on a laptop with Windows XP Pro. I 
get the message "The Standard Edition server component cannot be installed on 
Windows NT Workstation using this CD."

I need the server component installed so a database can be demonstrated 
off-site at a conference. Am I trying to do the impossible? Is there any way 
I can accomplish this? Do I need a different version of SQL 7? 

I remember doing this in the past but it probably wasn't an XP machine. 


4.XP Pro SQL Server Developer Support

I have uninstalled sql server developer version but now when I try to run the reinstall the cd spins and the install shield appears then disappears.  Two executables appear in task manager but none are using cpu.  I have spent over a week trying to resolve this issue.  I have done the following: Removed all registery keys related to sql server, msdn along with folder structures under program files.  I have installed all of the windows xp updates.  I have tried running the setup under the x86 folder along with the autorun.  I have rebooted time and time again. 

Next using my passport account I tried to submit an online request to microsoft.  They have an input box on their web page that will not take my product key information.  It truncates the last four digits.  I bought the developer edition over the internet and want to make sure it is a registered copy of SQL Server developer 2000.  The code I have is xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx. 

The only other options microsoft offers is the community forum, $245 phone call or $99 online request.  The software only cost $59.00 plus shipping.  Somehow we have a disconnect here on how microsoft supports XP, and developers.        

5.SBS2003 sql adp works with xp pro desktops but not win2000 pro des

I have a client with a new sbs2003 premium server xeon raid5 running sql 2000 
sp2 that came with the installation. XP pro machines can run a sql adp 
application whether in the domain or not.  The ADP points to a sql database 
on the server.  Win2000 pro machines cannot run the sql adp application 
whether the win2000 is in the domain or not.  Win2000 machines can access 
shares and login to the domain just fine.  The sql developer says it must be 
SBS2003 licenses.  The system shows no event errors and the server has plenty 
of licences.  It feels like a conflict between the sql application, sbs2003 
and win2000.  The win2000 machines are fully patched.  Any ideas would be 
very much appriciated.
