Thomas Thanks for commenting on my idea. My support case analyst suggested that I put this item into Ideas after she and I chatted about my experience and I pointed out that it wasn't mentioned in the installation guides. I'm a newer GIS Sys Admin, with 30+ years of ESRI desktop/workstation experience. So for some GIS Sys Admins the notion of putting the appropriate SQL client on the server is second nature, but for newer GIS Sys Admins, we're carefully looking at the documentation and installation guides. So my fresh eyes on this caught what I believe is missing information in the installation guides. Hope the Idea was helpful.
