Hey Taher843,

If your environment is small you can install vCenter with SQL Express that comes bundled along with the vCenter server setup.

Can this be installed on the same vCenter server ?

Will View Composer be able to connect to it ?

Thanks Abhilash for the response.

If you are installing the reporting services for the database make sure not set them to a different port, as they default to port 80 which can cause issues for vCenter Server.
