Hi there :

look at the installation guide :

*

VirtualCenter Database Requirements

*

VirtualCenter supports the database formats listed in Table 2‐1.

Each database requires some configuration adjustments in addition to the basic

installation. See "Preparing the VirtualCenter Server Database" on page 65.

*

End of Support Life for Microsoft Access Databases

*

Support for Microsoft Access was discontinued with VMware VirtualCenter

version 2.0. VirtualCenter 2.5 comes with a bundled version of Microsoft SQL

Server 2005 Express for small deployments (up to 5 hosts and 50 virtual machines).

Hello and welcome to the forums.

Select versions of Oracle and SQL are the supported databases. Check p.19 of the ESX Server 3 and VirtualCenter Installation Guide for the full requirements.
