| | MDS - why no SQL 2005 Express?
Please Login to Remove!
Our BES admin was going to upgrade our BES server, which is running MSDE 2000.
He found KB article KB12174, which says "When using SQL 2005 Express Edition to hose the BlackBerry Configuration Database, BlackBerry Mobile Data System (Blackberry MDS) Services is not supported.".
What does it need that SQL 2005 Express does not provide? Or is this an artificial limitation?
SQL 2005 Express has as many or more capabilities than MSDE - and allows an even larger database size and has no resource governor. So what is the reason?
Or does it work, but is just not "supported"?
