A full new instance with a different instance name, separate services, etc?

You install SQL again and when it asks for default or named instance, you give it the name of the instance you want to create.

So if it was installed as Default, do you have to uninstall and reinstall? or can you install over top? What if you want to create several instances, do you just run the install several times?

Thanks.

If you already have Default instance then install new instance as named instance .

do you just run the install several times?

Thanks.

that is exactly what you do, specifying a new instance name each time

Hi Gail,

Would your suggestion be applicable to SQL 2005 Standard Edition ( Version 9.2.3042.00) ?

I'm using SSMS (SQL Server Mang. Studio) (see screenshot below)

As you can see under "Registered Servers" I only have the Server where SQL2005 is hosted on.
How do I add an "instance"? Do I have to have to create a place on the server to install 2005 as a separate "Registered Server"?

once the instance is installed you register it by using

servername\instancename

so if you created an instance call "Instance1" on SQL server "London" then register using

London1\Instance1

To register a default instance you specify only the server name

But if i am not wrong we could add instances in SQL Server 2000, by right clicking
enterprise manager and create and register new instance by giving name of the instance.

i mean in 2005 and 2008 it will definetly requires new installation.

please correct me if i am wrong.
