Default SQL Server Developer Edition


Can anyone tell me the restrictions on SQL Server Developer Edition, I'm doing a certification, and I thought it would be good to get a copy for my home PC - Will I be able to test most of the functionality?

Hi Ben,

Take a look here: http://www.microsoft.com/sql/techinf...skChooseEd.asp
The Choose Edition document describes the various editions of SQL Server.

HtH,

Imar

Thank Imar that was really useful - I think I'm going to go for the Evaluation Edition.

Hi Ben,

In addition that the Evaluation version, you can also take a look at the MSDE (Desktop Engine). That's basically the same version as SQL Server Standard, but lacks the UI tools, like the Enterprise Manager. It will serve up to 5 connections at the same time, and will slow down considerable after that.

It's a good tool for developing applications, before they go live on a larger server.

Cheers,

Imar
