    I have two databases A and B on one pyhsical box called 'P'. I need to put
    another instance of database A on same box. i can not have same database name
    twice on same physical box twice so my solution was to create another
    instance of sql server on same box and create database A on it. so now it
    looks like this.

    Physical box P has two DBs
    -A and B

    New instance of sql server on same physical box P has
    - A (copy of DB A )

    Both DB's "A on physical box P and A on the new sql server instance" need
    to share/join to single copy of B runing on physical box P. Is there a way to
    do that without using linked servers?
