Anyone Used SQLExpress2008 for the StatsDB

Postby mark_anderson_us » Tue Jun 26, 2012 7:16 pm

Hi Guys

I have a dedicated VM for SQLMonitor and few other utils. I like to get the DB's for SQLMon on here too. Anyone ever tried ti with SQLExpress2008 (will be monitoring regular 2005 and 2008 servers)?

Regards

Mark

It is definitely possible to host your data repository database on a SQL 2008 Express instance. However, the maximum database size for this version is just 4GB. This can cause problems as the database can easily grow beyond this level.
