MSSQL Server Configuration for OpManager

If you choose to use MSSQL as the backend database for OpManager, we recommend that you create a seperate account for OpManager in your MSSQL database server. This ensures proper functionality. However, if you wish to proceed with your existing server account credentials, you may skip this configuration procedure and proceed directly with the installation. 

Note: It is highly recommended that you use MSSQL database for production. This also provides failover/high availability. 

Steps to configure MSSQL

Step 1: To ensure proper communication between the MSSQL database server and OpManager, a new account has to be created with the below mentioned steps.

  • Open SQL Management Studio and login using your Server Account (sa)/ Windows credentials.
  • Right click on Logins
  • Select New Login



Step 2: Select Authentication type. For Windows authentication, select and login using your Windows login credentials. For SQL Server Authentication, enter the password. Then proceed with Step 3.



Step 3: Click on Server Role. Select Server Roles "dbcreator", "public" and "sysadmin"



Step 4: Click on User Mapping. Map this login to "master" with database role ownership as "db_owner" and "public". Click OK.
