Thanks Elliott for quick response as i need to do it today.
1) When i install sql 2005 on same server, i can leave the default instalaltion, right?
2) We have only two drive c and D and on D drive we have data file and log file
Is it my data file name having an issue if i specify the directory D:\?
You can have 2 instances on the same IP with the same databases BUT the instance name will have to be different, your current setup is DBDEV, you can create an instance with any other valid name.
They are two entirely separate SQL servers so having the same Database name on each is just fine. They will be at different places on disk as well. Does this make sense
