Q: How can I check which SQL Server instance my SCVMM installation is using?
A: The easiest way to check which SQL Server instance your SCVMM installation is using is to look at the registry on the SCVMM server:
- Start the registry editor (regedit.exe).
- Move to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager Server\Settings\Sql.
- Look at the InstanceName and DatabaseName values for the SQL Server instance and database name. The ConnectionString value shows the complete combination.
- Close the registry editor.
