Hi
Can someone let me know why when i install SQL Server 2005 on a Server and take either the option to install a Default Instance or a Named Instance, The full package does not install? I don't get SQL Server Management Studio etc which i understand is Equivalent to Enterprise Manager in earlier versions of SQL Server.

I am unable to create any databases.

What am i doing wrong? I have 2 DVDs for this version, but it does not give me what i want. All i want to do is install this version of SQL just like i did with SQL 2000 which was a version i was familiar with.

Regards

big

it really depends, but if I were you I would take the default instance for the first install.

If you're installing express, there is a separate management studio express edition that you'll need to install.

Those are client tools and not part of the engine itself.  If you are using express, you need to either download Management Studio Express from microsoft.com or manage it from an existing box that has SSMS installed.

The thing is, i am not installing the Express version. The version i am installing is Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition. Basically the full product.

You still have to ensure that Client tools are selected.

For example, we don't install any client tools on any of our servers.  We all manage the servers from our machines, where the client tools (and engines) are installed.
