Quest Central: Duplicate database name?

P: n/a
Hello,

I was wondering if anyone here could help with a Quest Central issue.

I have two different hosts listed in Quest Central. Each host has a
database on it, but the databases have the *same* name. I can add the
database to the first host OK. But when I try to add the second
host's database, I get an error saying "Database name already exists."

Is there a way around this problem? Why does it matter if databases
across different hosts have the same name?

Thanks.

Because there's only one database directory. You need to specify an
alias when cataloging them if you want to use both databases.
