Selecting a DBMS

When installing Administration Server, you can select the DBMS that Administration Server will use. When selecting the database management system (DBMS) to be used by an Administration Server, you must take into account the number of devices covered by the Administration Server.

The following table lists the valid DBMS options, as well as the restrictions on their use.

If you are using SQL Server 2019 as a DBMS, you have to perform the following after installing Kaspersky Security Center:

  1. Connect to SQL Server using SQL Management Studio.
  2. Run the following commands (if you chose a different name for the database, use that name instead of KAV):

    USE KAV

    GO

    ALTER DATABASE SCOPED CONFIGURATION SET TSQL_SCALAR_UDF_INLINING = OFF

    GO

  3. Restart the SQL Server 2019 service.

Otherwise, using SQL Server 2019 may result in errors, such as "There is insufficient system memory in resource pool 'internal' to run this query".

Concurrent use of the SQL Server Express Edition DBMS by Administration Server and another application is strictly forbidden.
