MOSS 2007 Enterprise and SBS

    Running SBS 2003 Premium SP2 on a Dell PowerEdge 2800.
    =======================
    I know enough to put MOSS on it's own box running WinServer 2003, but am
    curious about others experiences (and lessons learned) from others who have
    added a server to the SBS domain (yes, I have the MS KB). I've been told I
    can use SQL on the SBS box with MOSS; knowing that SBS is unique in some
    areas, I'd rather not move forward without asking.

    Any and all advice/comments are appreciated!

  2. Don't know MOSS, but adding a server to an SBS domain is no different from
    adding it to any other domain. Except that SBS gives you a Wizard for it, of
    course. ;) You can choose to have it be a DC, even, though I wouldn't
    recommend it for a machine that is running an LOB app. And yes, MOSS can use
    the SQL running on the SBS box.

  3. Hello Mike,

    Thank you for posting here.

    From your post, I understand that you would like to know how to add an
    Office SharePoint Server in a SBS 2003 network and if we set SBS server as
    the Database server. If I have misunderstood your concern, please feel free
    to correct me.

    As you may know, MOSS 2007 cannot be installed on SBS 2003 directly, we can
    only install it on another server and add it to SBS 2003 network.

    Regarding the backend database, since SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition is
    included in SBS 2003 R2 Premium, we can set SBS server as the database
    server when installing MOSS 2007. No special steps are needed.

    I have included following articles for your reference:

    Install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a stand-alone computer (If
    customer wants to install a standalone version of MOSS)

    Deploy in a simple server farm (Office SharePoint Server) (If customer
    wants to deploy a server farm of MOSS 2007)

    I hope the above information is helpful to you. If you have any concern,
    please feel free to let me know.
