Two front ends and one backend Sql Server

  Asked By: Salvatore    Date: Jul 30    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2414

I have reviewed the documentation and not one document
says that you can attach to “different” front end
SharePoint servers to one SQL Server for the backend.
We have a Human Resources SharePoint “Front End” and a
Knowledge base document SharePoint “Front End” both of
these will attach to a SQL Server “Back End”. Should I
create two instances of SQL Server database.

In theory it sounds perfect but has anyone done this

I can't answer your question, but I would love to talk to you about your
knowledge base  document "front end." Can we set up a phone chat?

I actually answered it myself...sometimes you have to
rely on the old knoggin...<S>

We do have a very large knowledge base...but I am so
busy...once in awhile I get to have fun on this
site...and help or be helped..

What do you need to know about knowledge base.

I have two different FE servers  that use the same backend  database ..
each FE server  is unique and points to different Content DB's .... works
fine ...

I eventually will load balance my FE servers so that their IIS metabases
are identical .... this will allow for outward scalability and also so
that I can bring one down for maintenance without loss of service ...
