I've got a SQL Server Express 2005 installed on a server for vmware. The install didn't come with SQL Server Management Studio.
I want to now install this but I don't want SQL Server service to stop even momentarily. Can someone confirm if I can go ahead with the install without stopping the database.

Installing SSMS doesn't stop the database.
If your server is so important, you shouldn't install client tools on it, but on a seperate client computer.
