Hello,

Is it possible to install on a server SalesLogix SBS (2003 / 2008)?
Is there any indication against?


No problem so far?

Thanks

Re: SalesLogix 7.5.1 and Windows Small Business Server

We have it on 2003. However, it's really not a great configuration. I'd recommend teh following:

   A - 2003/8 SBS w/NO sql server on it.

   B - put sql server w/SLX server on a seperate box that's joined to the sbs domain.

Re: SalesLogix 7.5.1 and Windows Small Business Server

Hi,

 

We have installed slx 7.5.1 with no web on sbs2008.

We have problems in the slx admin when we add "big" bundles.

This only worked from a client.

The bad thing is, that Sage is not supporting SBS2008, so if you have a problem you might not get someone answering your questions.

Hi Alexander,

  SBS has become an important conerstone for business now. With SBS2008 now a 2 box/system configuration,  you would have SalesLogix on the 2nd system anyway.

 

So I do not really see any issues here.

Hi RJ,

 

Yes, if you have two servers installed, you are correct.

But we also see people running everything on one box and this currently is not supported by Sage.

Installing SQL IIS SLX Web on one server will hopefully be supported by Sage.

Alexander,

 I have found the single box SBS setup to not be a workable solution. It's something that should not be done. I would recommend that Sage SalesLogix not support such an implementation. There's way too many performance issues.

 

Go buy a nice big box with lots of memory and hard drive space

 

Install VMWare ESXi

 

Setup your SBS on one image and do a single server SalesLogix install on another image.

Re: SalesLogix 7.5.1 and Windows Small Business Server

Hi Guys,

 

from a technical view you´re right. But MS suggest that the SBS-Server is a one Box Solution, and a 10 People Company will not have a Enterprise Server.

We have most SLX Customers with 10 to 15 Clients and SBS Servers 2003, that works. I see a lot of problems selling the new SBS 2008 Server to small Customers. If we ar honest, the Customer need an Enterprise Server for a SBS Software...is this what we want?

 

What is a typical SLX Customer in the States? and how many users has he?

 

Thanks

 

Michael

MIchael,

 I agree that SBS2008 is a hard sell for people using SBS2003. In fact, we run SBS2003 and really don't want to go to 2008.

 

It's the all in one CAL that really attracts people to SBS.
