    I recently installed System Center Configuration Manager to Windows Server 2003 ( Non Enterprise) and was curious if its possible to have the SQL on another server that does not store System Center Configuration Manager. It seems like it wont allow me to have SQL on another server.

    Does anyone know if this is possible?

    Also is it possible with another server for System Center Operations Manager?

    Thank You,


    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I haven't installed System Center before, however, a quick look through some of the docs says that you can use a remote SQL instance for the site database.
    As for how that occurs during the install, I don't know since, as a I mentioned, I haven't set it up before.

    edit: incidentally, if you look deeper into the documentation, you might see this as well. As it appears that you haven't spent that much time looking into the yet, you may want to take a step back and look at your needs/requirements/goals and move from there. :) :p
