Can MSDE be cloned? I would like to creates an install of MSDE in an image I
am working on, and create an image of the load. Does anyone know if this
will cause problems for MSDE?
Thanks in advance.

AFAIK not… you can ghost a complete pc, but not a single MSDE instance
installation… I actually do not understand how do you prepare the “image”
to be burned and distributed… lot of dlls, both standard Win32 and COM
be installed and negotiated….
I do have really no clues…

Apart from Andrea’s comments, if you are just talking about creating an
operating system image that contains the MSDE and wanting to clone it, the
main issue relates to renaming the computer. Once you’ve done that, you
about renaming a system running sql server.

Thanks Greg. I’ll have a look at the docs. I’m working on a special project,
and must find a way of to get this done.
