I have VCSA 6, and 20 Esxi host configured with multiple cluster on the same vCenter, now I am planning to install update manger on windows 2012 R2 with SQL express, need to know what is the limitation if i user SQL express DB for update manager.
Is there any issue if i configure update manager using SQL express,..?
What is the configuration limitation for sql Express 2012.
But When I am trying to installing Update manager using SQL express, I see there is limitation of 5 Esxi host and 50 VMs, my concern is what if update manager is not downloading patch form VMware and update patches to Host.
Embedded Database Option:
Use Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express as the embedded database
This option is recommended for small scale deployments (maximum of 5 hosts and 50 VMs). If Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 Express is not already installed on the system, it will be installed automatically prior to VUM installation.''''
ATTACHED SCREESHOT FOR YOUR REFERENCE.
Yes, on searching vmware kbs it is limited to 5 hosts and to 50 vms. I thought of vms count, but it is hosts too. You can't use SQL Express, has to use SQL standard atleast or Oracle database. Thanks for clarification.
