Hi,

Have you installed SQL 2005 at all on a test system?

I've found it reasonably straight forward.

Simple steps
1. Maybe reboot server first
2. Put in CD/DVD and run setup and follow prompts
3. Maybe reboot server after

SQL installs - definitely SQL 2000 installs - want a reboot after, and will not run a subsequent setup without that reboot. I can't recall if SQL 2005 is that fussy.

Would suggest that if unfamilar with the setup, you run it on a test machine - workstation/test server just for the familarisation.

Hi,

I do agree that its quite different - SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) does take a little getting used to, at least a week iirc.

As TABB has indicated, its a mix of Enterprise Manager, Query Analyser, and bits of Visual Studio.

Hi,

First register a server, then from the registered servers, right click, and select the connect with explorer.

Then you should see a database explorer window, and can navigate much like Enterprise Manager.
