What is the tech recommendation from Nintex: is it necessary to install the Nintex database into the sharepoint sql instance, or can Nintex have its databases in its own separate Sql Server instance (on the same SQL Server, just separate instance)?
We always recommend creating an additional SQL instance for databases related to any 3rd party applications, such as Nintex. But plenty of companies have added the Nintex databases to the Sharepoint instance. How large is your farm? The larger your farm, the more important it becomes isolate things like this.
Hi Tom, thank you for your insight.
To answer your follow up question: We have a medium size farm (4 sp servers, 2 sql nodes) with 5k users.
