 PostgreSQL 7.4 and Microsoft's SMS

Hi guys,

Just received a query through the Advocacy site's request form...

Does anyone know if PostgreSQL 7.4's native windows version will/would
be compatible with Microsoft's SMS (System Management Server)?

Looks like some places will be considering it for Enterprise Deployment
if it is.

:-)

Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command

 PostgreSQL 7.4 and Microsoft's SMS

If you're talking about running as a backend for SMS you can be almost
certain it will not work. That one today works only with MS SQL (not
Oracle, DB2 or anybody else that already have native Win32 versions),
and probably uses a *lot* of the non standard features in it. IIRC the
beta of the new version of SMS coming out soon won't even work with
older versions of MSSQL - only SQL Server 2000 is supported.

If you mean that you can install it using the SMS Software Distribution
feature, that should be possible. Almost any app can be distributed with
that, assuming you repackage the setup. Almost all setup programs that
supports fully-noninteractive install will work without repackaging.

The *current* psql client will already install using SMS. Don't know
about the ODBC driver, but it should probably be possible with that one
too.

It certainly should do - that's one of the reasons it's in a Microsoft
Installer database.
