By binaries, I mean all
executables of SQL / Instances / Features.
I've just end the demo.
When installing 1st Instance
, even if I select another drive for the shared features directory
and the Instance root directory
, 1/2 of the installation files (in GB) goes to C:/system drive
(around 3GB for full install/select all).
When installing a 2nd instance
also full but w/out the shared components allready installed, 1/3 of the installation files goes to C:system drive
, but only around 700 mb this time (and 17 mb for Shared components + 1,5GB for Instances files).
And so on for additional Instances.
Is there a way of install all the files in another partition ?
And I am effectively talking of a Cluster installation. Good guess !
