Add SQL Database

I'm using SQL 2008 R2 on a Server 2008 SP2 machine. I already have SQL setup to run for Veeam and I've recently purchase LanGuard and installed it on the same machine. I don't want to use the same databases for both, so I was going to create a new one for LanGuard but I don't have the Management Studio or anything installed. Is there a way to install the Management Studio or is there another way to create a new database without it?

Thanks.

You can install Management Studio from whatever media you used to install SQL Server originally. You can install it to your local machine if you wanted to, rather than onto the server.

Your other option would be to run scripts to create the database from the command line using sqlcmd: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms165702(v=sql.105).aspx

OK, I've started the install media and chose to add features to an existing installation. When I get to the Feature Selection I have the following checked and grayed out.

Database Engine Services
SQL Server Replication
SQL Client Connectivity SDK

There is nothing listed for Management Studio. In the previous screen, it shows I'm running  10.51.2500.0 and the Edition is Express. Maybe that has something to do with it?

Yup, management studio doesn't come with express, but you can download it separately. Hop onto MSDN and search for "SQL express tools" to download it.

OK, I've downloaded that but I seem to get the same options. Just to clarify, under the Installation Type, do I want to do a new install or add features to an existing SQL Server? I don't want to wipe out the database I'm using for Veeam.

What was it you downloaded? It should be this: http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=7593

That is not the one I downloaded. I've downloaded it and ran it but I'm still confused if I should choose a New Installation or Add Features to an Existing SQL Server? If I choose the add features one, I get an error saying, "The instance ID is required but it is missing." I don't want to choose a new installation without knowing that it won't wipe out the Veeam database.

Thanks.

You want to add new features to an existing installation. Specifically you want to be adding "client tools".

Thanks, Carl. What is the, "The instance ID is required but it is missing" error referring to?

It sounds like you are trying to install the Express tools for a non-express install. SQL Express always installs with an instance name, and that is what the installer is looking for.

What version of SQL Server do you actually have installed? Is it the Express edition or not.

I'm not sure, I'm confused as well. When I go to SQL Configuration Manager, it shows the following under properties:

File Version: 2009.100.2500.0
Service Pack Level: 1
Stock Keeping Unit Name: Express Edition
Version: 10.51.2500.0
