Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 can be installed on a remote computer, that is, a computer other than the one on which Setup is running. Before performing a remote installation:
- Ensure that the local and remote computers are running Microsoft Windows NT® or Windows® 2000.
- Ensure that the local and remote computers have an Intel®-compatible processor.
- Ensure that you are logged on to the local computer with a user account that has administrative privileges on the remote computer.
A remote setup is much like a normal installation, with two additional dialog boxes:
- The Remote Setup Information dialog box, which is also used when Setup is run on a computer that is part of a cluster. For more information, see Remote Setup Information.
- The Select Computer dialog box, which allows you to select a remote computer from the list of computers within the connected domains. The list may include computers not available for this installation, because permission must be granted before installing on a remote computer.
A computer network name may be entered instead of choosing from the list.
