SQL Server Database

If you do not already have SQL Server, you can download the Express version of SQL Server for free. Novell Storage Manager 4.0 includes a utility for migrating the contents of the SQLite database to the SQL Server database. These contents include policies, schedules, pending events, and so forth.
