All, before I get into the questions here is an overview of the server I am using and the services it is currently running, which are minimal.
Server 2008 R2 Standard
Active Directory Enabled
Single Domain controller
64 Bit OS
(Future) DHCP Server
1. I inherited this server, so how can I verify that I have a full installation, or just a server core installation?
2. I know that the .NET framwork is not installed, but again before I get to far along; there are some things I would like to know in advance. Since I have only one server which has the services mentioned above, is it safe/reliable to run WSS
3.0 and SQL Express on it?
3. If I am not mistaken, WSS 3.0 installs SQL Express as well. I know that a backend DB server is the optimal approach, but I just don't have another server to use. Is this approach safe? SQL on the same box as WSS 3.0? I thought I read some place that Microsoft
didn't support such installations. Perhaps it was something else the article referred to.
I suppose the questions will be irrelevant if I am not running on a full installation.
Thanks for your responses.
