This issue has been solved. See solution.

We are busy upgrading to SEP12. We want to build a new SEP12 Server and migrate clients from SEP11 over a period of months, and host the database on the same SQL Server as SEP11.

I would like to know whether it will be a problem if we host the SEP12 database on the same SQL Server.

Like SEP11 = sem5 and SEP12 = sem6.

Shouldn't be a problem.

As long as you are careful in your setup and ensure no confusion, there should be no problem hosting DB for different SEPM versions in the same SQL Instance.

Edit # My bad :)

should not be a problem as long as they are in different db name, default is SEM5.db you can use the different one , He is right

Nopes, they should be fine to share the same instance.  Just be careful which DB you point which SEPM at wink

For added separation, just make sure you use different accounts for each SEPM and DB, so that the account used by SEP11 to access its DB has no rights to the SEP12 DB.
