MS SQL is properiatory database of microsoft and can runs only on windows platform but not on unix.

Hence suggest your management to go other database.

Well, you need to read the upgrade guide for MS SQL + related notes and check the notes with regard to parameters and memory settings of a 64bit platform...

Kind regards,
