DDC Collector Database

DDC Collector uses Microsoft SQL Server database as data storage. You need to create dedicated DDC Collector database on your SQL Server instance and configure it as shown below for the product to function properly. You can create the database manually—Using SQL Server Management Studio or Transact-SQL. Refer to the following Microsoft article for detailed instructions on how to create a new database: Create a Database.

NOTE: For performance purposes Netwrix strongly recommends to separate DDC Collector and SQL Server machine.

Before you create a DDC Collector database, consider the following:

  1. The database can be hosted on the SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition (or later).
  2. Depending on the number of objects in the database, it can take from 5 to 50 GB of disk space.
