  2. Yes, it can technically be done. You'll need at least SQL Server 2005
    Standard Edition (Not the Workgroup Edition that comes with SBS Premium.)
    That's the biggest limiting factor.

  3. Can I update the workgroup edition of SQL Server 2005 that comes with SBS
    Premium to the Standard Edition or other without loosing my databases?

  4. Best to ask in a SQL newsgroup, but I don't see a reason why not. But keep
    in mind you'll also need new SQL CALs for the upgraded SQL instances - your
    SBS CALs only cover Workgroup. All in all? Go with one of the other products
    that do at least as good a job and don't have a SQL Server dependency.
    Trend, Nod32 and AVG all have good solutions that work well in an SBS
    environment.

  5. Hello Customer,

    Thanks for your post. Let's also Cris for the input.

    According to your description, I understand that you want to upgrade the
    SQL 2005 workgroup on SBS 2003 to SQL 2005 standard. If I have
    misunderstood the problem, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    As we know, SQL 2005 workgroup edition is included in the SBS 2003 R2
    premium. If you want to use SQL 2005 standard edition, you will not to
    purchase the SQL 2005 standard edition as well as the CALs just as Cris
    have mentioned.

    Actually, we can install SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition on Windows Small
    Business Server 2003 with SP 1 or later. For information about this, you
    can check the following web site:

    SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition System Requirements
    http://www.microsoft.com/sql/editions/standard/sysreqs.mspx

    After you installing the SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition to the SBS
    server, you will be able to upgrade the SharePoint MSDE instance to the SQL
    instance. If you encounter any issue during that process, you can post the
    issue into the SQL newsgroup for assistance.
