hello,

i have SQL 2000 client connectivity tools loaded on a xp pro client. i want to setup databses for all domain users logging onto the pc. i logged on as administrator, setup and registered the databases, but when i log on as another user the setttings are lost. are the settings held in a file somewhere under the administrator profile on the client pc? how do i setup the enterprise manager once and  make sure its setup for all users logging onto the xp pro client?

anyone else have this situtation? please advise

thanks

Does it work if you copy the file from the Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Microsoft\MMC into the All Users directory with the same directory structure?

You can find The server list in the registry under:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\SQLEW\Registered Servers X

Check for answers here:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=%22HKEY_CURRENT_USER%5CSoftware%5CMicrosoft%5CMicrosoft+SQL+Server%5C80%5CTools%5CSQLEW%5C%22&btnG=Search

I have not found any simple solution to this, you can copy the registry key's to get the list on another computer, but with different users on the same machine...

Any way, hope it will lead you down the right track now when you have the registry key.

You can do an export in the registry editor, then import it in each userprofile.

Maybe there is a way to do it for all profiles at once, but I dont how to automate that :(

Im sure there is some kind of free registry copy tool somwhere if you check around some.

Thank you acetate, sorry that I could not be of more help.

I have had this problem also a few month ago, I did not find any clear answer and I ended up with register it all over again in EM :(

If you do find a solid solution please do post here, so that others can be helped.
