SQL Server 2008 install on Windows Server 2008
Posted by decipherinfosys on January 26, 2009
Recently, we got a chance to play with Windows 2008 Server and one of the things that we needed to do was to install SQL Server 2008 on it. The steps are pretty much the same as we had on Windows 2003 with the only difference being that the firewall is enabled by default in Windows 2008 Server and thus we got the warning message during the install about it. We had covered the SQL Server 2008 install on Windows 2003 Server in the past in our document here.
Here is another document which gives screenshots for the step by step basic install of SQL Server 2008 on Windows 2008 Server.
