Add new instance to MSSQL 2005
Posted on 2009-05-19
I'm trying to add a new instance to my MSSQL 2005 server. I don't want to make any changes to the existing 2instances. When I run setup on the original installation media, at System Configuration Check I get this warning message...
- Edition Change Check (Warning)
Edition Change Check
To change an existing instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 to a different edition of SQL Server 2005, you must run SQL Server 2005 Setup from the command prompt and include the SKUUPGRADE=1 parameter.
I don't want to change anything, I just want to add the new instance. Can I safely ignore this warning? What settings or options should I choose during setup? Does anyone know of a step by step guide to adding a new instance?
