Hi Experts

I've been looking for definite answer here and on the web with no luck. We have a new Windows Server 2012 that I'm in the works of setting up, its an HP Proliant ML350 G6 and I've installed HP Insight Manager 7.3 which installed for itself MS SQL Server 2008 R2, Ver 10.52.4000.

Its my understanding, I need to install a SQL Server Management Studio in order to correctly  change the Username and Password for the Admin of the database.

  I downloaded SQL Server Management 2008 Version 10.0.1600.22 x64. but when I attempt to install it I get .Netframeworks exceptions right away. I noticed on the MS Download page that requirements do not have Windows Server 2012 listed, but nor does the SQL Server Management Studio 2012..

My question is what version do I need to be able to install Studio on my Windows Server 2012 Server and work with the SQL 2008 R2 database instance created by HP SIM?

SSMS2008 Should be fine, did you install it on the server or on a workstation?

On the Server.. Should I be doing it on the Workstation.

I have nil experience working with SQL databases, usually I've ran installs that include them and they work and that's it..

You can install it both ways, on server or workstation.
If hp installed SQL server, is the SSMS by any chance not also installed?

Not that I can see it under the New Start List of Apps. and I did look up the usually location of the SSMS location and no files exist in the folder within the MSSQLSERVER folder and I also had done a windows search for the executable ssms.exe.. nothing found

OK. We can persue why SSMS 2008 is not installing or you can simply install SSMS 2012 on the server.
If remote management is desired i would go for a workstation install.

Sorry about the delay.. one person Tech Dept here... I noticed when doing a trial run of install on a older unit that it wanted to install another Instance SQL database I really didn't want to clutter our Server with another instance. I found a forum stating that a particular SQL Server Management Studio 2008 with link to get it from MS, would install only the Studio I tried that one and got it installed ok, though I just ignored the initial error message. It did install the 2008 version of SQL and the HP SIM one is 2008 R2 version, but I don't see another Database service loading.  I got the Username/Password issue corrected. Thank you
