Hi,

I am about to install Microsoft Orchestrator 2022. I am aware that I am able to install them in the same server but I am not aware of the pros and cons of it. Would it be better for me to install them in the same server or different ones?

Thank you,
Tasneem Shams

    Hi,

    It is recommended having Orchestrator Server and SQL server on separate machines for multiple reasons:

    Performance - allocate enough resources such as RAM / disk space

    Redundancy especially if running SQL as cluster

    Maintenance and DB Management .

    Here's a doc about Database Sizing and Performance:
