Install SQL Server Management Tools

SQL Server Management tools include the following components:

  • SQL Server Management Studio

  • SQL Server Profiler

  • SQL Server Database Tuning Advisor

  • Command prompt tools, such as sqlcmd.exe and osql.exe.

  • SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) add-ins to Microsoft Visual Studio

Note that SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) is a separate option during SQL Server installation.

Regardless of how many instances of SQL Server, Analysis Services, or Reporting Services are installed on a computer, only one copy of SQL Server 2012 Management Tools will be installed.

SQL Server 2012 Management Tools can run side-by-side on the same computer with earlier versions of SQL Server Management Tools.
