    Unanswered: EM without SQL Server?

    Hi I'm new to SQL Server.
    Actually I don't have SQL server installed locally, only on my hoster.
    Now I was wondering whether I can get/use EM for SQL standalone,
    as mmc snap-in, to connect to my remote DB? And where to get it, or any good alternative manager. (I tried www.aspenterprisemanager.com/ - it couldn't connect to the server, I tried another (unreleased) manager and that was buggy)

    Do you have a CD with any SQL Server edition? You should be able to install just the Client Tools off of it.

    drjabarov, no I don't have any SQL Server CD's...
    I was thinking, I only need this to upload & execute some SPROCS
    on my SQL server, what if I got MSDE and used osql.exe?
    Not sure whether that would work... however I'd rather have a graphical interface...Isn't there any (cheap) alternative to EM?

    Thanks for your reply.

    sure a cheap alternative is the developer edition
    40$ from microsoft
    however you should check your liscensing.
    you could also download the eval edition to you client and use the enterprise manager to register your sql server
    it's a 120 day time bomb however. so you will have to uninstall it and then reinstall it
    however you should check your liscensing.

    there are no cheap management tools for sql server

    netiq mgmt server costs $7,500 for a 5 server lisc.
