Hi everybody,


We have a requirement to install latest PI Server 2012 but it would be just a data storage hence can we install it without the AF/SQL? One method is use a separate AF/SQL Server temporarily while installing and later on remove the AF/SQL server and re-start the PI Server. But down the time if we require to upgrade the PI Server to later versions or apply some patches do we require the installed AF/SQL back? How to handle it. Second method what if we install AF/SQL on the PI Server itself, wouldn't it overload the PI Server especially since SQL Server takes lot of memory? is there any work around for it?


thanks to all
