First, SQL Server 2005 will not be supported on Windows Server 8 (in any case of the Windows 8 Preview!)
And what versions are supported on Windows Server 8?

Here they are:

  • SQL Server 2008  SP3 and above
  • SQL Server 2008 R2  SP1 and above

So take a closer look to your SQL Server Builds and be prepared!

I wish you a nice day,
