Installing Cornerstone

Cornerstone MFT Server runs on all versions of Microsoft Windows Server and stores configuration data on a Microsoft SQL Server database. If you do not currently have SQL Server installed, or if you want to use a local SQL Server, the Cornerstone installer includes Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and will give you the opportunity to install it. If you plan to scale Cornerstone to more than one computer for high availability, failover, or disaster recovery, install SQL Server on another computer or virtual machine to allow all Cornerstone Servers to share data.
