Default BES Express 5.0 sp1 SQL Question

Please Login to Remove!


I am about to install BES Express onto a windows 2003 server with 2003 exchange, my question is that the server already has an install of SQL Express 2005 on it, I think from Backup Exec. I dont want the BES install to screw any of the existing SQL up, will it detect and do the right thing or is somthing that I need to do manually, if so any instructions would be good as sql is not my thing.

Many thanks in advance

I've only installed BES with remote SQL, and in those instances it worked well installing to an existing instance hosting other services. I suspect it will detect SQL express and install fine, but without having done it I can't say for sure.

Is this a virtual box you can snapshot first?
