The VMware Carbon Black App Control SQL Server Configuration Guide provides information about configuring the App Control server and database. Carbon Black App Control uses a single SQL database named “das”. This database is created on the SQL server when you install the Carbon Black App Control Server.

This document describes some of SQL best practices as well as pre- and post-installation tasks that are necessary to ensure proper database operation.

Most of the database queries described in this document require sysadmin privileges on the SQL Server.

Important: This document is a supplement to the Vmware Carbon Black App Control Operating Environment Requirements document for your release, called the “OER” through most of this document. Information in the OER is necessary for successful completion of the tasks in this document, so you should have both documents with you when performing the tasks described here.

Intended Audience

This information is intended for anyone who wants to install Carbon Black App Control. The information is written for experienced Windows administrators and DBAs who are familiar with datacenter operations.
