Default installing BES 4.0 with SQL server

Please Login to Remove!

Couple of installation questions

1. Does the SQL server have to be on a sepreate box from the BES or can it be located within a virtual machine on the same machine as the BES?

2. I've heard that you can use MSDE instead of SQL server, again, does this have to be on a sepreate machine (box) or can it be on the same one?

Thanks for any inisght people may give me.

  1. SQL is recommended to be on a seperate box, but not required.
  2. MSDE will install locally with BES if selected.

What is the reasoning behind the recommendation of the SQL Sever being on another box??

It is the workload that the SQL server can produce. How many users are you going to have on your BES?

If that is all then do the MSDE on the local box.

So, to ask the question again, which is the better configuration for less headaches for users less than 4:

1. SQL Server on the same machine.
2. Using MSDE on the same machine.

For 4 users, definitely go with MSDE on the same box, unless you already have a separate SQL Server on a different box.

MSDE on the Blackberry server will be fine for 4 users. I had mine set up that way for my 10 users for the last 2 years.
