This section provides instructions on how to:
Netwrix Auditor uses Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services to run data searches and generate reports on changes to the audited environment and on its point-in-time configuration.
If you want to generate reports and run searches, ensure Microsoft SQL Server is deployed on the same computer where Netwrix Auditor is installed, or on a computer that can be accessed by the product.
Microsoft SQL Server is not included in the product installation package and can be installed manually or automatically through the Audit Database Settings wizard. This wizard automatically installs SQL Server 2014 Express with Advanced Services and configures Reporting Services.
NOTE: It is recommended to consider the maximum database size in different SQL Server versions and make your choice based on the size of the audited environment. Note that the maximum database size in SQL Server Express editions may be insufficient.
