IBM Support

Running MSDE and SQL Server the same TEM server machine is not supported.

Technote (troubleshooting)


Running MSDE and SQL Server on the same TEM server machine is not a supported option for TEM.

Resolving the problem

You will have to either use the SQL Server installation with TEM or remove the SQL Server installation and install MSDE instead.

Note: When the TEM Server installer detects that SQL Server is installed, it will create a new database that is completely separate from all other databases that SQL Server is currently using. There should not be any problems or conflicts between the TEM database and other databases.

Note: Running a production TEM server deployment on an MSDE database is not recommended. Usage of an MSDE database should be limited to evaluating the product using small deployments.
