We're in the middle of configuring SLK in an existing SHarePoint site with a database instance call MICROSOFT##SSEE.
Please can you confirm that this is the instance name we should append to the database server name inthe SLK database section of configuring?
Will this action have any impact on the the existing data in the database, or is a fresh SLK database created within this instance?

Sorry for asking what I suspect is a pretty obvious question, but being relatively new to SharePoint and SQL it'd be good to know that we're not going to affect any existing data.

Cheers,

Hi Keith,

Yes that's the name to use. It will have no impact on the existing data as you will need to create a new database in there (make sure the check box is ticked).
