Sql Server 2005 Standard Edition X64
The RTM installation of the product is supported. However, you have to install the respective service packs after the initial setup is complete. Your SQL server 2008 installation is not supported unless you apply Service Pack 4 after you install the RTM edition. You will see the following message on the Solution Center page.

Minimal Server is a Server Core installation that has Server Manager and other server tools installed. Therefore, the SQL Server Setup program performs the same installation steps in Windows Server 2012 R2 Minimal Server Interface mode and Windows Server 2012 Minimal Server Interface mode and Server Core mode. Additionally, you can switch between Server Core and Minimal Server when one or more instances of SQL Server 2014 or SQL Server 2012 are installed. This is a supported scenario.
SQL Server Reporting Services 2012 is not supported on Windows Server 2012 R2 Server Core, Windows Server 2012 Server Core, Windows Server 2012 R2 Minimal Server Interface mode, or Windows 2012 Minimal Server Interface mode. You can install SQL Server Reporting Services 2012 on a server that is running Windows Server 2012 in Full Server mode and then switch to Windows Server 2012 Server Core mode. However, this configuration is not supported.
We recommend that you uninstall all the SQL Server 2012 features that are not supported on a server that is running Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012 in Server Core mode. For information about how to do this, see Install SQL Server 2012 on Server Core).
This section provides support information about instances of SQL Server 2005 in Windows 8.1 or Windows 8 environments. It also describes the options that are available for customers who are using SQL Server 2005.Microsoft SQL Server 2005 (the release version and service packs) and earlier versions of SQL Server are not supported on Windows 10, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows 8.1, or Windows 8. You will receive a warning in the Action Center if Windows 10, Windows 8.1, or Windows 8 detects an instance of SQL Server 2005.

I have been using SQL server 2005 Standard (32-bit).I am planning to upgrade to 64 bit. But unfortunately I cant find a download link for SQL Server 2005 Standard (64 bit). If any one knows the microsoft link, it would be a great help.
My hypothesis based on that post and related information I have seen elsewhere is that by default a SQL Server 2005 x86 instance will be able to use 4GB of memory on Windows Server 2008 x64 and if I enable AWE then SQL will be able to use as much memory as the OS's sees.
x86 processes with the LargeAddressAware bit set (like sqlservr.exe) get a full 4 GB VAS for themselves. Enabling AWE (on OS and SQL editions that support it) allows the SQL server instance to map extra pages (up to 64GB) in and out of its VAS and use them for the buffer pool.
I was building an OCS R2 Standard Edition Server on Windows Server 2008 x64 and wanted to install the SQL Server 2005 Management Studio Express Tools so that I could run some sql backup scripts when I encountered an installation error. At first I thought it was an incompatibility issue but quickly dismissed that since OCS R2 still uses SQL Express 2005 as the database engine.
Microsoft is taking big strides in forcing developers to write applications that will install as a standard user account, however since this is an older application it clearly thought it had enough administrative permissions to install correctly as I was logged on as a local admin.
Database mirroring is a new SQL Server technology available for review for increasing database availability. Database mirroring transfers transaction log records directly from one server to another and can quickly fail over to the standby server. You can code client applications to automatically redirect their connection information, and in the event of a failover, automatically connect to the standby server and database. Fast failover with minimal data loss has traditionally involved higher hardware cost and greater software complexity. Database mirroring, however, can fail over quickly with no loss of committed data, does not require proprietary hardware, and is easy to set up and manage.
Network Load Balancing servers (also called hosts) in a cluster communicate among themselves to provide key benefits, including: Scalability. Network Load Balancing scales the performance of a server-based program, such as a Web server, by distributing its client requests across multiple servers within the cluster. As traffic increases, additional servers can be added to the cluster, with up to 32 servers possible in any one cluster.
High availability. Network Load Balancing provides high availability by automatically detecting the failure of a server and repartitioning client traffic among the remaining servers within ten seconds, while providing users with continuous service.
AWS DMS supports, as a source, Microsoft SQL Server versions 2005, 2008, 2008R2, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2019 on-premise databases and Amazon EC2 instance databases. The Enterprise, Standard, Workgroup, Developer, and Web editions are supported. Ongoing replication (CDC) is supported for all versions of Enterprise Edition, and Standard Edition version 2016 SP1 and later.
This is what I heard back from AWS support. Really just a single option but something which would require a major work. What they have suggested is to upgrade the SQL server to newer versions which support CDC. In our case, it would be SQL server 2016 and above. The major work in upgrading a DB is mostly verifying the application compatibility with the DB. We were able to upgrade the DB without any errors on database end but application will need to be verified.
SQL Server 2005 can run on 32-bit platforms as well as on 64-bit platformsbased on Itanium or x64 64-bit architectures. The hardware and softwarerequirements on the 32-bit platform are different than the requirements for the64-bit platform. Different editions of SQL Server 2005 have different hardwareand software requirements. In addition, different SQL Server 2005 components,such as Reporting Services, have additional requirements. SQL Server 2005 setupincludes a startup process called System Configuration Checker (SCC) that checkswhether the system meets the minimum hardware and software requirements, inaddition to performing other configuration checks. (Note that SCC warns the userbut does not block the setup if the processor speed or the available systemmemory does not meet the requirement. SCC is discussed later in this chapter.)
The following sections list the hardware and software requirements of SQLServer 2005 Enterprise Edition on 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. You can findcomplete details on SQL Server 2005 requirements at in Books Online.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 Service Pack 1 or later is required forall installations of SQL Server 2005. However, if you are installing clientcomponents only and you will not connect to a server that requires encryption,Internet Explorer 4.01 with Service Pack 2 is sufficient.
SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services requires Internet Information Services(IIS) 5.0 or higher. The IIS web server must be in the running state if you wantSQL Server 2005 setup to configure the Report Server.
I mentioned above that there are a number of software prerequisitesfor SQL Server 2005 Express Edition. Before you can install the database software,you need to take the necessary steps to get these items installed.
For this article, I am installing SQL Server 2005 Express Editionwith Advanced Services SP1. The name of the downloaded file is SQLEXPR_ADV.EXE. Double-click this file tostart the product installation. The contents of the file are extracted and the installationbegins.
At this point, SQL Server 2005 Express Edition is installed andcan be managed using the SQL Server Management Studio Express tool that was installedalong with the database server. To access this tool go to Start All Programs Microsoft SQL Server 2005 SQL Server Management Studio Express.
Joining the CoDe Magazine E-Column and E-Mail Newsletter this month is the SQL Server Observer edited by Ron Talmage. Ron is a CoDe Magazine author, SQL Server MVP, and current president of the Pacific Northwest SQL Server User Group. SQL Server Observer will cover technical topics that bear on directions and trends in the SQL Server community.
Despite all these major improvements, one area that SQL Server 2005 takes some small jabs at, without hitting squarely yet, is scaling out. When many experts discuss scalability they distinguish scaling up from scaling out. Scaling up means replacing or strengthening current server hardware, whereas scaling out means adding equivalent (preferably cheap) server hardware alongside the server currently in use.
