Setting Up the Database

NetResident saves all of the network content that has been captured and analyzed in a Microsoft SQL Server database, which ensures high performance and flexibility in content searching. Therefore, to be able to use NetResident, you can either use an existing installation of Microsoft SQL Server (version 2008 R2 or higher is required) deployed on one of the computers on your LAN, or make a new installation with the help of the NetResident Database Manager, which will help you automatically download and install Microsoft SQL Server 2014 SP2 Express or Microsoft SQL Server 2016 SP1 Express, depending on your Windows version and its bitness.

The SQL server may be installed either on the computer on which the NetResident Service is installed or on a different computer on your LAN. If the SQL server is installed on a different computer, please make sure that SQL Server Browser is also installed and running on that computer.

The Express edition of Microsoft SQL server has a limit of 10 GB per database. In order to bypass this restriction, the NetResident Database Manager allows you to create multiple databases with different names.
