  2. 2. Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2008 SQL Server Setup support files Software 2 SQL Server Setup requires Microsoft Windows Installer 4.5 or a later version After installing required components, SQL Server Setup will verify that the computer where SQL Server 2008 will be installed also meets all the other requirements for a successful installation. For more information, see Check Parameters for the System Configuration Checker. Network Network software requirements for the 64-bit versions of SQL Software Server 2008 are the same as the requirements for the 32-bit versions. Supported operating systems have built-in network software. Stand-alone named and default instances support the following network protocols: Shared memory Named Pipes TCP/IP VIA Note Shared memory and VIA are not supported on failover clusters. Virtualization SQL Server 2008 is supported in virtual machine environments running on the Hyper-V role in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008 Standard, Enterprise and Datacenter editions. The virtual machine must run an operating system supported for the specific SQL Server 2008 edition listed later in this topic. In addition to resources required by the parent partition, each virtual machine (child partition) must be provided with sufficient processor resources, memory, and disk resources for its SQL Server 2008 instance. Requirements are listed later in this topic.3 Within the Hyper-V role on Windows Server 2008, a maximum of four virtual processors can be allocated to virtual machines running Windows Server 2008 32-bit or 64-bit editions. A maximum of 2 virtual processors can be allocated to virtual computers that are running Windows Server 2003 32-bit editions. For virtual computer that host other operating systems, a maximum of one virtual processor can be allocated to virtual computers. Notes: It is recommended that SQL Server 2008 be shut down before shutting down or the virtual machine.http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506(v=sql.100).aspx[09/08/2012 4:53:57 PM]
  3. 3. Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2008 For more information about the Hyper-V role in Windows Server 2008, see the Windows Server 2008 Web site. Guest failover clustering is supported in SQL Server 2008. For more information about the supported versions of SQL Server and operating systems for guest failover clustering, and the support for virtualization, see Support policy for Microsoft SQL Server products running in a hardware virtual environment. Internet Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 SP1 or a later version is required Software for all installations of SQL Server 2008. Internet Explorer 6 SP1 or a later version is required for Microsoft Management Console (MMC), SQL Server Management Studio, Business Intelligence Development Studio, the Report Designer component of Reporting Services, and HTML Help. Hard Disk Disk space requirements will vary with the SQL Server 2008 components you install. For more information, see Hard disk space requirements later in this topic. Drive A CD or DVD drive, as appropriate, is required for installation from disc. Display SQL Server 2008 graphical tools require VGA or higher resolution: at least 1,024x768 pixel resolution. Other Pointing device: A Microsoft mouse or compatible pointing Devices device is required. 1 The following .NET Framework versions are required: SQL Server 2008 on Windows Server 2003 (64-bit) IA64 — .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 SQL Server Express — .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 All other editions of SQL Server 2008 — .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 Installation of .NET Framework requires a restart of the operating system. If Windows Installer installation also requires a restart, Setup will wait until .NET Framework and Windows Installer components have installed before restarting. Note Installing .NET Framework 2.0 SP2: .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 is not available as a separate download. You will need to install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 which includes .NET Framework 2.0 SP2. 2 SQL Server Setup will not install the following required components for SQL Server Express ,SQL Server Express with Tools, and SQL Server Express with Advanced Services. You must install these components manually before you run SQL Server Setup:http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506(v=sql.100).aspx[09/08/2012 4:53:57 PM]
  4. 4. Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2008 SQL Server Express — .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and Windows installer 4.5. On Windows Vista, use .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. SQL Server Express with Advanced Services — .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, Windows Installer 4.5, and Windows PowerShell 1.0. SQL Server Express with Tools — .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, Windows Installer 4.5, and Windows PowerShell 1.0. Note SQL Server 2008 Express SP1 is now available in two formats: SQL Server 2008 Express SP1 with the Microsoft .NET Framework version 3.5 SP1 support and SQL Server 2008 Express SP1 with the Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.0 Beta 2 support. There are no functional differences between these two formats. Either package supports computers running .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 or .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. For computers running .NET Framework 4 Beta 2 only, install SQL Server 2008 Express SP1 with the .NET Framework 4 Beta 2 support. 3 As with all virtualization technologies, SQL Server 2008 running in a Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V virtual computer will be slower than on a physical computer with the same physical resources. Processor, Memory, and Operating System Requir ements To view system requirements, select an edition of SQL Server 2008: Server Editions of SQL Server 2008 SQL Server 2008 Enterprise (64-bit) IA64 SQL Server 2008 Enterprise (64-bit) x64 SQL Server 2008 Standard (64-bit) x64 SQL Server 2008 Enterprise (32-bit) SQL Server 2008 Standard (32-bit) Note SQL Server Enterprise evaluation is available for a 180-day trial period.
