comment Can I install a PostgreSQL hot standby instance on the same server?
It's not a virgin project, and we don't have any Linux servers in the business. If it was, we'd be using SQL Server where setting up multiple instances is also a doddle!

comment SSL Certificate trusted on one machine, not another
@John Gardeniers: This was the exact solution. The certificate I installed fixed it in IE, but not other apps, but copying it from another machine worked perfectly. If you'd put this as an answer rather than a comment I'd accept it!

comment SSL Certificate trusted on one machine, not another
That tool couldn't recognise my domain name - could that be because it's a) an internal web service only or b) a certificate on a sub-domain? Also, see edit: Browser now doesn't report a problem, but application calling web service still throws error.

comment Problem adding Oracle to SQL 2005 as a Linked Server
facepalm That's what was missing. I went over to double-check, and it was mis-spelled (though I'd removed and re-added a dozen times!) Thank you so much for your help!

comment Problem adding Oracle to SQL 2005 as a Linked Server
OK, I tried that - it seems to get all the information from TNSNames correctly, then prints 'OK (80ms)'. I'm presuming that means everything is hunky-dory...

comment Problem adding Oracle to SQL 2005 as a Linked Server
I will be honest with you - I don't even know what a TNSPING is. I click 'test connection' in SQL server, and it gives me the error messages described. Is TNSPING something different that might help diagnose the problem?

My SQL Server is on a 32 bit machine - is this still an issue?

comment SQL Server 2008 Management Data Warehouse Cache
Accepted in the absence of any other suggestions! Determined in the end this must have been down to a server/network hiccup, files were not being updated and not being used and nothing complained when I deleted them.
