RE: Co-Hosting SQL with IIS FTP service



I would split those services if at all possible

I dont have any data to hand to backup this claim up, but i would suggest that this is a common sense approach?

Patches may become an issue - you may need to have a SQL box providing 24 x 7 x 365
You then need to patch the IIS component, and a reboot is needed, down goes SQL
You really want to reduce the attack surface of your systems, you wouldn't open up any SQL listeners to the whole world, but you would in an indirect way i assume if you use IIS FTP, [compromise FTP - stage an attack on the SQL service?]
Also what about data storage - FTP can if unechecked start to fill up disk space - if your SQL server is mission critical it could possib;y impact on this?

I wouldn't if i could help it -

Others may disagree

Subject: Co-Hosting SQL with IIS FTP service


Can anyone guide me as to what type of issues with inter-system dependencies might arise by co hosting IIS FTP service with SQL?

Anyone know of any articles on the exploits?
