SQL Server 2005 Installation On Windows Server 2008


This might be generic post, but thought of bringing to attention.

If you have installed SQL server 2005 on Windows server 2008 server ( 32bit or 64bit ) , you would be surprised to see that SQL management console is missing and some of other options which were a part of windows 2003 are missing.

The next thing you have to do is to re-run the setup.exe and launch the tools which will install the missing components

And one of the prerequisite is to install the sp2 for SQL server 2005
