Hi,

I am installing the 4.0 Manager, and the installer is asking to connect to a SQL server.

I don't have SQL server installed, can you provide some guidance as to what needs to be setup in order to connect the manager to SQL Server?

NOTE: This ONLY applies to Manager version 4.0

Installing SQL server is no small task, and there are several caveats to doing a correct SQL server install or modifying SQL server to connect to the manger.

In the PM Downloads of your process meter account, there are two links to documents that will help you.

The "4.0 Manager SQL Server Install Guidance" will help you install SQL server
The "4.0 Manager SQL Server Remote Access Guidance" will help you configure SQL server so the manager can connect.
