I've got a machine with two partitions installed by primary software vendor and we also have a product from the same vendor that accesses the production partition using MS SQL Server. We recently had a problem with the MS SQL based application and had to restore files for them to pull data into the data warehouse. I repeatedly had to let them know that the Initial Catalog they needed to use for the second partition where I had restored the files they needed. I was thinking of making an RDB Directory Entry on the second partition that matched the first partition just to make all our lives easier in the future, but I was wondering if there is a reason not to that I may be missing.
