My current configuration is a Windows Small Business Server 2003 running Windows Sharepoint Services 2.0 with MSSQL 2000.
My question pertains to the feasability of running Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0 on Windows Small Business Server 2008 Standard (not Premium).
Because Windows Small Business Server 2008 Standard Edition will run on one hardware server, running a 'Basic' installation will create a Windows Internal Database on the server. Would an 'Advanced' installation allow me to specify a configuration database, specifically on another 2003 server containing MSSQL 2000? Can this scenario work with SBS 2008 Standard?
My goal is to migrate the existing database to Sharepoint 3.0 and use my new server containing Windows SBS 2008 Standard as the 'application' server.
I'm also fully aware that I can perform side-by-side installation of WSS 3.0 and WSS 2.0 without breaking the integration between my Windows Small Business Server 2003 and Windows SharePoint Services 2.0.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
