MS-SQL server installation


Can i know how many hours required to install SQL onto a server. Is there anything that we need to require before we can install.

Pls assist.


we cannot exactly speculate the time required for installation,but as per my experience it has always taken somewhere around 45-60 minutes to install all the services.
.net framework will be required.

I believe the time for the actual installation shouldn't be too much, like ahmeds08 said, it should be under an hour. However, the configuration and preparation might take longer. I would say to be safe, you can estimate 2 hours. (with all the post config and service pack installation etc).

hope this helps
