FineBuild Standard Builds
FineBuild recognises that SQL Server builds typically fall into one of four categories, and presents these as the FineBuild Standard Builds. Each Build is pre-configured with the options most suitable for that build, but each option can be changed to meet site requirements.
FineBuild also has a concept of a Main Instance and additional instances. Most SQL Server components are installed only when running a Main Instance build. If additional named instances are installed, only those components listed for an Additional Named Instance Server Build are installed. The default instance (MSSQLSERVER) is always treated as a Main Instance, but any instance name can be used for the main instance.
The SQL FineBuild Standard Builds are listed below:
| Item || Description |
| Main Instance Server Build || Normal build for SQL Server database server machines. The components are installed on multiple disks, and all services needing access to the network are run using specified service accounts |
| Additional Named Instance Server Build || Used if an additional SQL Server Named Instance is required on a database server that already has the main instance installed |
| Workstation Build || Normal build for Development Workstations, where developers require the use of a local SQL Server instance during application development |
| Client Tools Only Build || Normal build for DBA Administration machines and any machines that require client tools only |
