Install a new instance of SQL Server 2008 for Windows SBS 2008 for Windows SBS 2008 migration

Updated: January 22, 2009

Applies To: Windows SBS 2008

To install a new instance of SQL Server 2008

  1. Insert the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard Edition for Small Business disc into your DVD drive, and then run either D:\SQL2008\x64\Servers\setup.exe or D:\SQL2008\x86\Servers\setup.exe, where D is the letter of your DVD drive.

    ImportantImportant
    If you are installing SQL Server 2008 in a 32-bit version of Windows Server 2008, you must use D:\SQL2008\x86\Servers\setup.exe.

    noteNote
    If you are installing SQL Server 2008 to use with a line-of-business (LOB) application, see the documentation for that application to ensure that it is compatible with SQL Server 2008 and to determine if there are specific configuration requirements.

  2. If the .NET Framework 2.0 installation dialog box appears, on the End User License Agreement page, review the licensing agreement. To continue, you must accept the agreement, and then click Next.

  3. When .NET Framework 2.0 is installed, click Finish.

  4. On the End User License Agreement page, review the licensing agreement. To continue, you must accept the agreement.

  8. On the Feature Selection page, click the Database Engine Services check box. If your LOB application requires that you install the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services component, click the Reporting Services check box. You can also click any of the other check boxes to install additional features. Click Next.

  9. On the Instance Configuration page, choose the Default instance, and then click Next.

    ImportantImportant
    If you are installing SQL Server 2008 as part of your LOB installation, consult the documentation for the LOB application in order to determine whether you need to create a named instance of SQL Server 2008 other than the Default instance.

  10. On the Server Configuration page, do the following:

    1. Type the service account and password for each service. Or type a shared account and password in Use the same account for all fields, and then click Apply to all.

      ImportantImportant
      You can use either a local user account or a domain user account as the service accounts. If you use a domain user account, the server that you are installing SQL Server 2008 on must be connected to the domain.

    2. On the Collation tab, specify non-default collations for the Database Engine and Analysis Services. For more information, see Specify SQL Server collation settings for Windows SBS 2008 migration.

  16. Click Next when it becomes available on the Setup Progress page.

  17. On the Complete page, click Close.

When you finish installing Reporting Services, you must run the Reporting Services Configuration Manager to fully configure and enable Reporting Services. See the documentation for your LOB application to determine the specific configuration settings.
