Step 12. Selecting an authentication mode
Dec 4, 2023
Determine the authentication mode that will be used when Administration Server connects to the database management system (DBMS).
Depending on the DBMS that is selected, you can choose from the following authentication modes:
- For SQL Express or Microsoft SQL Server select one of the following options:
- Microsoft Windows Authentication mode. Verification of rights uses the account used for starting Administration Server.
- SQL Server Authentication mode. If you select this option, the account specified in the window is used to verify access rights. Fill in the Account and Password fields.
To see the entered password, click and hold the Show button.
For both authentication modes, the application checks if the database is available. If the database is not available, an error message is displayed, and you have to provide correct credentials.
If the Administration Server database is stored on another device and the Administration Server account does not have access to the database server, you must use SQL Server authentication mode when installing or upgrading Administration Server. This may occur when the device that stores the database is outside the domain or when Administration Server is installed under a LocalSystem account.
For MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, or Postgres Pro, specify the account and password.
