Unanswered: Installing A Default Instance AFTER a Named Instance???
I have SQL Server 2000 Standard Edition (sp3a) running on a windows 2003 (sp4) Server.
It is a Production Server with 3 NAMED Instances and NO Default Instance.
Does anyone know if I can rerun the SQL Server Install and add a DEFAULT Instance to this box without disrupting the other Named Instances???
Except for a reboot after the install, you should have no problems installing a default instance.
Will the default instance automatically have the name of the Server - or is there a way to give it name - like you would a named instance.. sorry if the question sounds stupid.. : )
The default instance will have the name of the server. The only way around this that I can think of off the top of my head is to give the machine a DNS alias.
Thanks !!! I'm not so much worried about the name as I am Blowing up the Server by installing a Default Instance AFTER it has already been populated with Named Instances.
