Identifying a Microsoft SQL Server instance

If you are evaluating both access and auditing features or only auditing, you must have at least one Microsoft SQL Server instance for storing audit-related information.

For evaluation purposes, you can use an existing Microsoft SQL Server database instance to which you have administrative access or automatically install and configure an instance of Microsoft SQL Server Express with Advanced features directly from the Centrify Audit Configuration Wizard.

You should only use Microsoft SQL Server Express for evaluation and testing. You should not use Microsoft SQL Server Express for a production environment.
