Managing Microsoft SQL Server databases

Managing an audit installation requires permission to create new SQL Server databases on a SQL Server instance. In a production environment, this is an ongoing process to keep databases small and efficient. Because the management of the audit databases is not a one‑time setup operation, Centrify recommends that you have at least one dedicated SQL Server instance for the audit administrator to use. The audit administrator should also be a member of the SQL Server system administrator role to ensure full control over the databases created and archived.
