HI,

I have sql server 2005 installed on our sbs 2008 server. I want to install the database for outlook business contact manager on the server but I am not sure if I should create a new instance or not. I have about 1gig or RAM that is either being used as cache or free.

But my concern is that I have two instances that were created by symantec backup exec and if I install another instance it will use up a lot more RAM.

So my question is should I create another instance for the contact manager DB or use the existing one? I am also worried that if something happens to symantec backup exec the data for the contact manager might also be affected.

Any tips?

Thanks

ok thanks for the tip. My main concern with using the same instance was that if backup exec was removed for some reason I didn't want it to remove the entire DB with my contact data.

As for backup I will make backup exec backup the .bak files.

Thanks
