3.0 Installing and Configuring an SQL Server Instance

This section provides procedures for installing a Microsoft SQL Server instance with the settings needed to support Micro Focus File Dynamics.

File Dynamics requires a Microsoft SQL Server as the database and does not support the SQLite database that was utilized in previous versions of Storage Manager for Active Directory.

IMPORTANT:SQL Server is a fully-featured database service, and as such requires installation and maintenance planning before deployment. While a complete analysis of this maintenance is beyond the scope of this product's documentation, we strongly recommend that you review Microsoft's SQL Server documentation to plan for separation of data and transaction logs, regular database backups, and transaction log and data growth.
