I don't think you need to take any special care to install Oracle and SQL Server on the same server.Both will work perfectly on a single server.

Make sure you configure the 2 dbms's properly and monitor their performance/resource usage. Oracle can take up some big time memory, etc if not managed properly. SQL 7 has done a nice job of managing its own resources, just make sure you check up on these 2 when putting them both on 1 box.

I would like to add my $0.02 to this one. I agree that there is no "technical" reason why you cannot put these two beasts together on one server but I think to say that either of them does a very good job of managing resources is a bit of a stretch.It is more of a relative thing, Oracle takes a worst case view from the beginning while sqlServer seems to slowly grind through resources.

I am actually more concerned about the idea that you would want to do it at all for anything other than an experimental mode or on a very carefully set up machine. certainly you dont want to have the two databases on the same drive because the churning back and forth will just kill performance on a single drive machine if you are hitting both DB's at the same time.

The key way to think about resources if you are running two databases like this (or DB2 or two Oracle instances ...) is to think in terms of usual case and how big your machine would be for EACH of the databases in that case. Then "add"all of these machines together. You might end up with slightly more machine than you need but it is usually better than ending up with a lot less. If you are truly paranoid you could look at worst case ;-)

Happy Trails
