Hi,

We currently have seperate servers for our production and test database.
I would like to know if there would be any problems if we start having them on the same server?

Thanks
Shruti

Well, you could do it, but typically you want to be able to try out new queries on test databases and you may have a poorly written query or a bug that consumes resources which will cause problems in your production databases if they are on the same server. Also you should be testing service packs and CU's on your test server before applying to production.

A CU is a cumulative update of fixes that is not as rigorously tested as a service pack. These fixes can change the behavior of code so that what worked no longer works or no longer works as expected, which is why when applying them you should do so to a test server first, then to a production server.

A service pack is an rigorously tested update to the software that fixes bugs and can include new features. Again the update(s) couls change behavior of code so needs to be tested before applying to a production server.
