Problem Installing SQL 2005 Enterprise on Server 2008R2 Enterprise???

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I am trying to install SQL Server 2005 Enterprise onto a new WinServer Enterprise 2008R2 box.  I am using my MSDN disk that contains the various flavors of SQL Server 2005.  When I select to install Enterprise (64 bit) version all that is available for installation are the client tools, no server tools.  When I install the Standard version, the server tools are available. Is there a problem installing SQL 2005 Enterprise on WinServer Enterprise 2008R2???

Installing SQL Server 2005 Enterprise in Windows 7 Professional



i have Windwos 7 Professional Installed in my computer. also i have installed Visual Studio 2008 as well.

last week i wanted to install SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition in my computer so i came to know that u need the SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 for this as well.

after obtaining both the Enterprise Edition Setup and the SP3 Setup of SQL Server 2005, i began the installation. first i installed the server. and selected The Server and Workstation components. but when the installation was progressing, it gave a message that the workstation componenets could not be installed and hence only the MSSQLSERVER Service got installed. i take think this so seriously hoping that client tools (workstation componenets) can be installed after the SP3 is being installed. so after the setup completed, i installed SP3 as well. even there, the client tools were disabled.

after SP3 installation and System Restart, i couldnt find Managament Studio; so i again went to the SQL server 2005 setup and selected the client tools to be installed. but just before the installation started, an error message prompted saying that "one or more componenets could not be installed" and then exiting the setup..


please advise what i am missing. i tried the same thing using SQL Server 2005 Standard but the same thing happens.

Can't connect to SQL 2005 Enterprise using Management Studio with Server Name (only (local) works

This is a test system, everything running locally & no domains. Win 2003 Ent. Server & SQL Server 2005 Enterprise. I can't log into SQL Server Management Studio using the server name & using either Windows Authentication or SQL login. If I change the name of the server in the drop-down list to "(local)", I connect just fine (both Windows & SQL security modes). Shared Memory, Named Pipes & TCP/IP enabled in both server & client. Remote connections allowed. I have IP adresses (both & external IP) in my hosts file pointing to the server name. Does SQL require a DNS server? This wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that I can't install SQL 2005 SP3 due to authentication failure since there's no way to enter (local) as the server name. SQL tools (management studio, SP install) seem to see the SQL server running but won't authenticate the user through any means other than setting server name to (local). This is driving me crazy!!!

Does SQL 2005 Enterprise Edition come preloaded on Windows Server 2003 Virtual Server.

Does SQL 2005 Enterprise Edition come preloaded on  Windows Server 2003 Virtual Server. I found this link http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=77f24c9d-b4b8-4f73-99e3-c66f80e415b6&displaylang=enMr Shaw

Why doesn't SQL Server 2005 Enterprise always shrink a log file after a backup?

I have several databases that, despite being backed up regularly, do not release space to the operating system.  In one extreme case, I have a log file that is less than 1% utilized (and has been for months.) I know how to manually force a shrink, but I should not need to do that on any sort of regular basis.  In fact, it is against best practices to manually shrink a log file (or any database file for that matter) because of the very high risk of an unrecoverable error. It is my understanding that SQL Server will eventually handle these things on its own.  However, it does not appear to be doing so.  Any thoughts as to why? Thanks, Dave

I setup SQL 2005 on my machine and when i open SQL 2005 mangment i don't know where i can get Server Name to connect it ... and after that i remove it and setup again and i note that there is non active component in setup like SQL Data Base .... so my questions are  1 - How can i know my server name ( i try to use my computer name and local and use windows auth. and sql authontication ). 2- I think the problem is that there is previous files so i need to totally remove SQL Server ?

Cannot Connect to SQL server with SQL 2008R2 enterprise On windows server 2008R2

I have 2 identical brand new servers Running Windows Server 2008 R2 not on a domain but simple LAN. I Installed a default instance of SQL server 2008 R2 enterprise on each one with all the default settings. No Problems during the Installaion. I Added the Windows Administrators Group and Users group to the SQL admins role during the SQL Server Installation. Remote connections are enabled on each server. I restored the same database from a copy on each Installation. Configured the user accounts on each maching and made them sysadmins and granted permissions where they were needed. Now from server A when i try to establish a connection to Server B from SQl server Management Studio I get An error stating that the server was not found or accesible. keep in mind i can \\server B\c$ and vice versa, named pipes are enabled. I have never had this problem before in my life. And it's happening on both servers. I really need each installation of SQL to be able to see the other remote installation as i have to create a mirror. -Chris

MS SQL Server 2005 Standard or Enterprise with default encryption

Hi, I wish to know whether or not by default MS SQL Server 2005 Std or Ent edition will encrypt the communication over the network by default? As, when we test out the database activity monitoring solution to capture the SQL traffics from the network, we are unable to see the DB user name and Source Program but SQL statements is able to seen. According to the vendor, it is due to the nature of MS SQL Server 2005 that encrypt the communication by default. But, why is it only encrypted the DB user name and Source Program but not the SQL statement? Can someone provide me the answer? Is that true what the vendor claims?   regards, Teh

Slow sql-server after upgrade from SQL-Server 2005 x64 standard to SQL-Server 2008 R2 x64 enterprise


We moved our databases to new hardware today (using copy database wizard)


The new hardware should be better than the old one.

We went from 28 GB ram to 128 GB.

We went from 16 cores to 32 cores (with even more cache etc.). We also moved from external SAN with 40 disks to intern disks (8 Samsung SS805 100gb ssd slc)

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Installation Problem


Good evening!

I downloaded Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Edition (x86 and x64) from MSDNAA (i study computer science) and also  Windows 7 Professional (x86). I installed Windows 7 and i tried to install SQL Server but i receive the "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 installation has failed. SQL Server 2008 Setup requires .NET Framework 3.5 to be installed." error. I tried installing .NET Framework but it doesn't work because it's installed by default with Windows 7 (i checked the "Turn Windows features on or off" page and the "Microsoft .NET framework 3.5.1" checkbox is checked). I understand that this means .NET framework 3.5 SP1 is also installed so i shouldn't have any errors.

Can anyone help me with this installation problem?

Thank you!

Can I install SQL 2008 on a server running SQL 2005 to install Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise (Productio



Sharepoint 2010 Upgrade Question - A customer is currently running sharepoint 2007 on a 64bit windows 2003 OS with SQL 2005 sp2, they are looking to install/upgrade to Sharepoint 2010 and want to use the current SQL server,for the upgrade a new SharePoint 2010 environment will be built and for a short while they will have two instances of SharePoint running SP2007 and SP2010. The plan is to then manually migrate the data from SP2007 to SP2010 (ENT), the web and application servers will be newly built. From research I think they have three options

1) Upgrade the current SQL 2005(SP2) instance to SQL 2008 R2 standard.

2) Install a new instance of SQL 2008 R2 on the same server and have both SQL 2005 & SQL 2008 running on the same server (Is this an option? Will sharepoint happily run from a SQL server running two SQL instances, do I have to be careful regarding the installation and configuration, could I break the existing sharepoint farm doing this?)

3) Upgrade the current SQL server to SP3 and install a new instance of SQL 2005 SP3 and install SharePoint 2010 Enterprise here, again I have all the questions from point 2 above.

We are thinking of trying option 1, then 2, then 3, and obviously only moving to the next option if we come across a show stopper. H
