Downloading and installing SQL Server manually

You can use an existing Microsoft SQL Server database engine or install a new instance. You can download Microsoft SQL Server software from the Microsoft website or through the Centrify Support Portal. In selecting a version of Microsoft SQL Server to download, you should be sure it includes Advanced Services. Advanced Services are required to support querying using SQL Server full-text search.

After downloading an appropriate software package, run the setup program using your Active Directory domain account and follow the prompts displayed to complete the installation of the SQL Server database engine.
