So, in preparation of installing SharePoint 2016, I was installing SQL 2016 Enterprise. I got to the “Feature Installation” page and found that SQL Management Studio is not listed in the SQL install. Think I am lying? Look below!
So, I did a bit of research and found this: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt238290.aspx where you can download SSMS for 2016. It is backwards compatible. I have not seen the technical reason behind this change, but if I had to guess it is so you can get SSMS by itself AND you don’t install anything extra on your Database Server. I am sure someone will comment and give a good number.
