Install the Privilege Management Reporting Database

To install Privilege Management Reporting database, run the Privilege Management Reporting Database installation package with the Database Creator user that you set up when you created the required user accounts.

  • If you are running the installer on the same machine as the database, use Privilege ManagementReportingDatabase.msi.
  • If you are running the installer on a client machine, use Privilege ManagementReportingDatabase.exe. This includes the SQL Native Client Redistributable package.

The Privilege Management Reporting Database installer assigns specific privileges to the user accounts that you created previously.

  1. Run the installation package and click Next to continue. The License Agreement dialog box appears.
  2. To accept the agreement, select I accept the terms in the license agreement and click Next. The Database Server dialog box appears.
  3. Set the Database server to use for Privilege Management audit data as (local) if you are using the same machine for your database server and you didn't create an instance. If you did create an instance, you need to add it here, for example (local)\BeyondTrustReporting, where the instance is BeyondTrustReporting. The database servers are available from the dropdown menu.
  4. Type a new name in the Name of database catalog for Privilege Management audit data field.
