At this step of the wizard, specify the following connection settings, depending on the database management system (DBMS) that you have selected:

  • If you selected Microsoft SQL Server or SQL Server Express in the previous step:
    • In the SQL Server instance name field, specify the name of the SQL Server on the network. To view a list of all SQL Servers that are on the network, click the Browse button. This field is blank by default.

      If you connect to the SQL Server through a custom port, then together with the SQL Server host name specify the port number separated with a comma, for example:

      SQL_Server_host_name,1433

      If you secure communication between the Administration Server and SQL Server by means of a certificate, specify in the SQL Server instance name field the same host name that was used at the certificate generating. If you use a named instance of SQL Server, then together with the SQL Server host name specify the port number separated with a comma, for example:

      SQL_Server_name,1433

      If you use several instances of SQL Server on the same host, then additionally specify the instance name separated with a backslash, for example:

      SQL_Server_name\SQL_Server_instance_name,1433

      If a SQL Server on the enterprise network has the Always On feature enabled, specify the name of the availability group listener in the SQL Server instance name field. Note that Administration Server supports only the synchronous-commit availability mode when the Always On feature is enabled.

    • In the Database name field, specify the name of the DBMS that has been created to store Administration Server data. The default value is KAV.

    If at this stage you want to install SQL Server on the device from which you are installing Kaspersky Security Center, you must stop installation and restart it after SQL Server is installed. The supported SQL Server versions are listed in the system requirements.

    If you want to install SQL Server on a remote device, you do not have to interrupt the Kaspersky Security Center setup wizard. Install SQL Server and resume installation of Kaspersky Security Center.

  • If you selected MySQL or MariaDB in the previous step:
    • In the SQL Server instance name field, specify the name of the DBMS instance. By default, the name is the IP address of the device on which Kaspersky Security Center is to be installed.
    • In the Port field, specify the port for Administration Server connection to the DBMS. The default port number is 3306.
    • In the Database name field, specify the name of the DBMS that has been created to store Administration Server data. The default value is KAV.
  • If you selected PostgreSQL or Postgres Pro in the previous step:
    • In the Postgres server name field, specify the name of the DBMS instance. By default, the name is the IP address of the device on which Kaspersky Security Center is to be installed.
    • In the Port field, specify the port for the Administration Server connection to the DBMS. The default port number is 5432.

In the Database name field, specify the name of the DBMS that has been created to store Administration Server data. The default value is KAV.
