When there is a single SQL Server instance and the user does not want to install a central repository, how can the statistics be updated with no central repository?
1. Install the local repository database.
2. From Instance Configuration, add a Central Repository.
3. During the Central Repository installation, browse to the same host/instance as the local repository | select the existing local repository for the central repository. This will force the updates to be on the same database. A central repository database will not be required, since the local repository will serve both roles.
