Can Backup Exec 10d co-exist with SQL Express 2005?
Posted on 2008-01-25
I have a Windows 2003 R2 server running Backup Exec 10d. There is currently no other SQL instances installed or running on that server, although I do have Backup Exec running a backup of some SQL 2000 databases on another server (remote agent).
I would like to install SQL Express 2005 on the Backup Exec server, but I'm worried it may break or interfere with the Backup Exec database. Will there be any conflicts or should I keep anything in mind while installing SQL Express 2k5? I don't want to convert the Backup Exec database or anything like that... just leave it untouched.
Nightly backups are 10x more important than this little project, so I'm just trying to play it safe here.
