Using Remote SQL for NW Installation

Hi All,

I am planning to Install SAP EHP1 for NW 7.3. I want to use the existing MSSQL Database whch is present in the different server.

Is that possible to use that?

When I am trying for Installing through"Standard System" it is showing the local Instance and If DB exist it showing as already the DB exist.

It's showing "you can only chose local instance in this Installation type" as below.

Can any one tell me what type of Installation I have to choose to perform the Installation with pointing the remote MSSQL Instance?

It should be a "distributed" one because you have your database on different host an application on different one.
