The additional polling engine will talk directly to the main Orion database. There is no need for a local SQL install. Now, having said that, the additional polling engine will install SQL compact edition, which is needed to create files needed for the services. I mention that so that when you see this on the server it doesn't get removed, or raise questions of why is there a SQL install when you were just told the polling engine will talk directly to the main Orion database. All you need to do for SQL communication is make sure that the polling engine server can communicate on ports 1433 and 1434 to the SQL server.
