VMware Can update manager 6 share the same SQL database as the Update Manager Download Service?

Hello,

I have installed VMware update manager 6 on a Windows 2012R2 machine with an external SQL 2014 database. The install seemed to work correctly, but I am now installing Update Manager Download Service on a separate machine.

Can both applications share the same SQL database? or do I have to create a separate database for each one.

Thank you

Hi,
You can use the dame SQL server, but of course VUM needs it own DB.

The article you mentioned says Update manager and VCenter need a separate database, that I understand, but I am talking about VUM and UMDS. I Already have a VUM SQL database. Does UMDS use the VUM database or do I need to set up a third SQL database?
