SQL Server 2005 express & Win2k3
No idea if anyone else has come across this before but thought I'd share as I was trying to troubleshoot an HP Web JetAdmin install today.
SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Readme
HP seem to have missed this little nugget when they okayed it for use with Server Win2k3...
2.10 Installing SQL Server Express on a Windows Domain Controller
Security Note We recommend against running SQL Server Express on a domain controller.
It is possible to install SQL Server Express on a Windows domain controller; however, it cannot run on a Windows Server 2003 domain controller as Local Service or Network Service. SQL Server service accounts should run as Windows domain user accounts. It is also possible to install SQL Server service accounts to run as Local System, but this option is not recommended.
Do not change the role of the server after you install SQL Server Express. For example, if you install SQL Server Express on a member server, do not use the Dcpromo tool to promote the server to a domain controller. Or, if you install SQL Server Express on a domain controller, do not use Dcpromo to demote the server to a member server. Changing the role of a server after you install SQL Server Express can result in loss of functionality and is not supported.

Now having fun removing it from one Domain controller...
