Same server for second/multiple wss installation

  Asked By: Hannah    Date: Sep 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 771

We have a 2 machine moss install that is now in use. We're wondering if its
possible to put in a second, totally separate WSS 2 server installation but
re-using the existing database box. ie having 3 machines in total.
I imagine its perfectly possible, in that we'd just be creating a new and
totally separate suite of databases on the existing machine.
But is this advisable or even supported?
Personally i'm horrified by the idea of it but want to find out if its just me.

My first reaction is "why would you create a new WSS2 installation", but
putting that aside...

Assuming your database  server/cluster is stout enough to handle the
load, there shouldn't be a problem with serving multiple applications. You
could create a separate  instance if you're worried about keeping things
separate, but that shouldn't be necessary.

Are your concerns related to security, performance, uptime, or something
