Connecting to your Servers
The informXL SQL Server installation will be performed by an informXL Support Analyst and will require
remote access to your SQL Server instance. The most common way for us to connect to your servers is
via Microsoft Remote Desktop or Citrix Metaframe. Our login will require access to the following:

  • SQL Server Management Studio
  • SQL Server login with sysadmin rights. This will allow us to create databases, establish the
    required SQL Users, and create and configure SQL Server Agent Jobs.

What Gets Installed or Updated

  • Database 1: “informXL” (Analyzer application database)
  • Database 2: “informXL_dm” (Datamart data warehouse database)
