Microsoft SQL Server provides the Reporting Services that enable creating, viewing and
managing reports based on data stored in a local SQL Server database. NetWrix Windows
Server Change Reporter uses these Reporting Services to generate reports on changes to the
monitored computers.
To use the Reports functionality, Microsoft SQL Server must be installed on a computer that
can be accessed by NetWrix Windows Server Change Reporter.
The following Microsoft SQL Server versions are supported:
Table 4:
Supported Microsoft SQL Server Versions

Microsoft SQL Server is not included in the product installation package and must be installed
manually or automatically through the Reports Configuration wizard. This wizard
automatically installs SQL Server Express with Advanced Services and configures the Reporting
Services. SQL server version installed through the wizard depends on the operating system
your computer is running (for details, refer to the following NetWrix Knowledge Base article:
Which SQL Server versions can be installed automatically via NetWrix Management Console).
For your convenience, we have provided instructions on the manual installation of Microsoft
SQL Server with Reporting Services required for NetWrix Windows Server Change Reporter.
For details refer to the following NetWrix technical article: Installing Microsoft SQL Server
and Configuring the Reporting Services.
For full installation and configuration details, refer to the documentation provided by
Microsoft.
Note:
If you install NetWrix Windows Server Change Reporter on a read-only
domain controller, SQL Server installation will fail (both manual or automatic
through the Reports Configuration wizard). This is a known issue, for details refer
to the following Microsoft Knowledge Base аrticle: You may encounter problems
when installing SQL Server on a domain controller. To fix the issue, install the
product on a different computer, or install SQL Server manually on a different
computer that can be accessed by NetWrix Windows Server Change Reporter.

6. UPGRADING FROM PREVIOUS VERSIONS
Procedure 10.
To upgrade NetWrix Windows Server Change Reporter
1.
Make sure no data collection task is running.
2.
On the computer where the product is installed, close all program windows (NetWrix
Enterprise Management Console, wizards, and others).
3. Download NetWrix Change Reporter Suite.
4. On the page that opens, click the Install link under Windows Server:
5.
When the installation is complete, enable the NetWrix Windows Server Change
Reporter tasks in the Task Scheduler.
After the product upgrade, the NetWrix Windows Server Change Reporter agents on the
target computers will be upgraded automatically and all your current product settings will be
preserved, but the upgrade from NetWrix Server Configuration Change Reporter v.3.0 to
NetWrix Windows Server Change Reporter v.4.0 results in the following exceptions:

False “add/remove programs” changes may be reported after the first data
collection.

The Report Manager will contain two report folders for both product versions: the
old NetWrix Server Configuration Change Reporter folder and the new NetWrix
Windows Server Change Reporter folder. All reports generated by NetWrix
Windows Server Change Reporter are stored in the new folder. Audit data
collected before the upgrade will only be available in the NetWrix Server
Configuration Change Reporter folder.

The database retention setting available in the new product version will be
inapplicable to audit data collected before the upgrade. To delete old audit data
collected before the upgrade manually, refer to the following KB article: How to
delete audit data from the database after the upgrade.

If you have NetWrix Management Console installed on the computer where you are
going to perform the upgrade, the console SMTP settings will be applied to the
Windows Server Change Reporter module. Otherwise, the SMTP settings specified
for NetWrix Server Configuration Change Reporter will be saved in the console.
