SQL Server Placement
When planning for SQL Server that will host Netwrix databases, consider the following:
- Both standalone servers, linked servers and SQL Server clusters are supported.
- For PoC, evaluation scenario or small environment SQL Server can run on the same computer where Netwrix Auditor Server will be installed, or on the remote machine accessible by Netwrix Auditor. Remember to check connection settings and access rights.
- For large and extra-large environments – SQL Server should be installed on a separate server or cluster; installation of Netwrix Auditor and SQL Server on the same server is not recommended in such environments.
- With Netwrix Auditor and SQL Server running on different machines, make sure to establish fast and reliable connection between them (100 Gbps or higher).
