Came across an issue today that was really just a matter of me not reading the fine print. I figured a quick post on this could help someone with the same issue.
While attempting to install a database using DBCreateWizard, I was receiving the following error.
Read our privacy statement:
I was installing an operational database for a second Management Group in an instance already containing an operational database, so I attempted to name the database OperationsManager-MG2.
Note: It’s not recommended to host more than one OperationsManager database on a single instance in most environments. Usually this would be done in a lab or development environment.
Name the new database OperationsManagerMG2.
After research most every avenue, I popped open the deployment guide to see if there was anything I was missing about DBCreateWizard. I didn’t find anything directly pertaining to DBCreateWizard, but after further reading I had a memory refresh.
Page 103, number 12, of the R2 Deployment Guide states, “…do not insert a ‘-‘ in the database name…”. Doh!
