Guys,

We're always running out of space in our Virtual Center (VC) SQL express.
We do have an enterprise license for version 4 + 5, so i wish to install a full SQL on the same VM as the VC and use it as our DB with more space than the default 4GB.

Please provide me a step by step guide for this procedure.
In adition, should I uninstall SQL express from the VC?
Is it a best practice to install the full SQL std 2008 on the same VM as the VC?

Thanks in advance

I would recommend a new dedicated server for Full SQL for vCenter Database.

Or if budget sensitive ensure you give vCenter Server plenty of RAM eg 16GB

Import from existing SQL express to full SQL --OR-- installing a fresh SQL std x64 (2008 R2), on the same VC VM and connecting the VM DB to the new installation.

I don't care much about the existing data in the DB, but i prefer to keep it if it's possible.

TNX in advance
