Set Up the Database Server

Active Directory groups must be created before you run through this procedure.

To create the AD Bridge Enterprise Reporting Database using SQL Server:

  1. Create a database named LikewiseEnterprise.
  2. Copy the SQL Server database creation script (CreateLikewiseEnterpriseDatabase.sql) to a location accessible from SQL Server.
  3. In SQL Server Management Studio, on the File menu, click Open and load the database creation script: CreateLikewiseEnterpriseDatabase.sql.
  4. Connect to the LikewiseEnterprise database and run the script. If the script executes with errors, run the script again.

For more information, please see Active Directory Groups and SQL Server Roles.

To assign recommended roles to the database:

  1. Copy ReportingPermissions.sql to a location accessible from SQL Server.
  2. In SQL Server Management Studio, expand the Databases node, right-click LikewiseEnterprise and click New Query.
  3. Open the ReportingPermissions.sql file and execute.
