subject: Any Reason Not To Have an RDB Directory Entry with Same Name
onBoth Partitions of a Physical Box?

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.

Don't do it...the first thing that comes to mind is that a sql connections between the two partitions will fail (same database name).
