    Unanswered: Installing Oracle and SQL Server on the same box

    I know this is a bad idea overall, but I was hoping someone could identify any technical issues I will (might) experience that would make this a deal stopper for my organization.

    (Hardware allocation is never what it should be #sigh#)

    Much Appreciated.

    The OS never cares what application(s) runs on it, as long as enough h/w resources exist (CPU, RAM, disk, network, etc.).
    In and of itself, it is not a Bad Thing (TM).
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.

    We have sybase and oracle running on unix boxes.

    I have MS SQL Server and Oracle running on Win 2000 box for testing purposes.

    I agree with previous comment. However, where it creates more work for DBAs will be design and layout fo disks, memory allocation/restriction, etc.

    Someone should perform cost versus performance analysis based on your database requirements (size, users, etc) to determine if this should be a show stopper.
