Can SIM v 5 coexist with MS WSUS?

Anyone install SIM with WSUS successfully?
I encountered an error "unable to get information from the specified hosts"
at the stage of configuring the SQL db.
Anyone have a clue how to fix this?
Thanks.

Thanks. The hardware I am using is HP Proliant DL385. Not sure whether the hardware variables plays a major part since the issue is pretty much SQL related.

We're running HPSIM and WSUS on a DL380 G3.

The DB's for both HPSIM and WSUS are on a separate Server.

Found a workaround. It's pretty much confirm that WSUS's SQL2k is NOT compatible for SIM v 5.
So, what I did was - install MSDE 2k SP3a manually. Configure TCP/IP for that specific host (do not choose the WSUS's SQL)
And the rest is pretty much straight forward.
Hope the above solution helps the rest who attempt to do the same.
