Not sure how to verify this since I did not install vcenter.  I want to upgrade from 4.0 to 4.1 and noticed the guides reference backing up the DB.  How can I confirm which DB was selected during the install and where it resides?

Thanks Guys, I was looking at the ODBC and there was no user/system DSN listed, but I read a conflicting article referencing the ODBC drivers, which I do have so I wanted to confirm.  I have SQL Server 2005 listed under start > programs so I'll presume the person that set it up used the local SQL express option.
