Option 1 - Run the Foglight database tool to configure the database

Run Foglight’s database tool from the command line after exiting the installer. The database tool is located in the <foglight_home>\client\ directory.

NOTE: Option 1 does not currently support the creation of a SQL Server® database with Windows® integration.
NOTE: The tool creates the -Ddb.schema.username user when you run the command.

Option 2 - Run SQL scripts to configure the database

If you clicked Create during the database installation step, the SQL scripts in the <foglight_home>\scripts\sql directory are prepared with the provided configuration options. SQL Server® generates four SQL scripts for each Authentication type:

You can review these scripts before running them.

You must run the configured scripts against the database using a third-party tool.

Run the .sql scripts by issuing the following commands from the prompt in the order shown:
NOTE: In the following commands, replace <admin_username> and <admin_password> with the user name and password for the user account of the Microsoft SQL Server administrator.
NOTE: The script sqlsvr_create_db.sql does not drop the existing schema.
NOTE: The script sqlsvr_integratedauth_create_db.sql does not drop the existing schema.

After you have run all four scripts, you can start the Management Server. Proceed to Starting and stopping the Management Server.
