    Is it possible to install and deploy ISA Server 2000 and SQL Server 2000 on
    a Small Business Server 2003 configuration?

    Small Business Server 2003 Standard Edition, that is.

    Yes it'll need the premium technologies edition
    or disc (for MSDN users) though....

    Once you have this, you can upgrade your standard
    setup.... (SBS 2003 Standard edition is required first...)

    Just successfully finished installing ISA Server 2000 on the SBS 2003 STD
    Edtion box. A few other questions come to mind:

    1. Do I need to install ISA Server's Service Pack 1 and Feature Pack 1? This
    is necessary when running ISA Server on a Windows Server 2003 box. Is it
    also necessary on the SBS 2003 box?

    2. When installing SQL Server 2000 (and later SP3), I figure the
    installation is an upgrade to the existing MSDE installation, is it not? Or
    can one safely install a new instance of SQL Server 2000? Since SharePoint
    is also installed, does it need to be uninstalled prior to installing SQL

    Tnx again!

    Kind regards,

  5. ISA SP1 is required for SBS2k3 (as well for Win2k3).

    However, I really have no idea why anyone would install ISA without getting
    the Std->Premium upgrade? Installing ISA separately is not cheaper and it is
    certainly not easier.

    Just reminding,
    If you're doing this legally, I don't know that there is
    any benefit installing either of the full Server Apps
    separately on SBS2K3 instead of simply upgrading to SBS2K3
    Premium. The Full Product CALs are incompatible with
    SBServer so at least SQL2K probably would be very costly,
    requiring both a Server license and CALs (if the license
    is not based on the Processor).

    That said...
    - When you install ISA2K Product on SBS2K3, you'll be
    presented with the standard product installation, not the
    SBS Wizard-like setup which automatically configures many
    things automatically. Which can be good, or it can be bad
    depending on what you do for yourself.

    - Depending on the ISA2K media you use, SP1 may or may not
    be included and may need to be installed. FP1 will not be
    installed automatically, and neither is ISA2K SP2.

    - You can install SQL2K side by side or upgrade the MSDE
    instances. You just need to conform to named instance

    Yes, you'll need to install the Service pack for ISA (SBS
    is still really Win3k server)...

    As regards SQL Server, the installation will give you the
    choice of upgrading the pre-installed instance of
    SHAREPOINT (MSDE) to a SQL Server DB - I have mixed
    feelings about this though.

    I tried upgrading the original instance and the operation
    failed miserably - SQL server didn't start up! So I
    decided to uninstall and then install it again completely
    as a whole new instance.... (that worked fine - although
    you just had to re-create the Sharepoint Virtual server
    COMPANYWEB again...)
