A person came up to me today, and asked if SQL 2008 and SQL 2008R2 can reside on the same OS. I asked them why they would even consider trying to do such a thing, since both versions are so close to being the same. But then I had to tell them that I was not absolutely certain. I know that you can have SQL 2000, SQL 2005, SQL 2008R2 and SQL 2012 on the same OS, which I have currently on one of my boxes. So I would think that you could not have. Was I correct, or incorrect?

Thanks in advance for your assistance

Sure they can. It's just like putting 2005 and 2008, or 2008 R2 and 2012. They're all different versions of SQL.

Think of SQL 2008 R2 as if it was named SQL Server 2010 and things are generally a lot clearer

At one point, when I had too much to support, I had 2000, 2005, 2008, 2008R2 and a beta of 2012 all running on the same machine (with two different versions of Express too). You can't expect performance or good behavior with this type of setup, but it will function.
