Trying to install isolated instance of Microsoft SQL
Posted on 2004-09-16
I'm a brand new user of Microsoft SQL.
I installed MS SQL on my computer which is attached peer to peer to my boss' computer and we have some valuable data on his computer.
Basically, I want to get an isolated version of SQL running on my computer so I can muck around with tables and not worry about deleting things.
Following is what I see on my version of SQL
>Microsoft SQL Servers
>SQL Server Group
>Ori (Windows NT)
>Data Transformation services
Can I just use add remove programs to remove SQL from my computer without messing up his version or data on his computer?
I tried to install a new server group and a new registration. They seemed to appear, but they didn't have anything in them (ie. the basics like pubs, etc.)
What would you recommend I do?
