SQL Server 2005 - Create Server and Register?
Posted on 2006-05-02
I just migrated to SQL Server 2005 and was pleased to see that my old SQL 2000 Server Instance was backward compatable. I can actually view/edit/etc from the Studio Manager. Cool! I like backwards compatability.
However, I would like to start a new 2005 server instance and have it be registered. How can I accomplish this?
In the Studio Manager, in the "Registered Servers" window, it seems like all I can do is add a previously registered server instance (such as my SQL Server 2000 instance I mention above). There isn't a choice that I can see anywhere for creating a new one. Since all the 2005 client tools are brand-spankin' new and are totally diffent than the old enterprise manager, I'm not sure what to do. Maybe I am looking in the wrong place? What sequence of mouse clicks brings up a new server creator?
