ABSTRACT:

Installation guide for SQL Server 2008 for an Enterprise vault.

 

This guide is written for installing a new instance of SQL Server 2008 as it relates to SolidWorks Enterprise PDM.  For a complete set of installation instructions, as well as system and software requirements, please use the following link.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms130214(v=sql.100).aspx

SQL Server is a database program, and is a required component of a SolidWorks Enterprise PDM vault installation.  The SQL Server is used to manage the metadata for the files in the vault.  The information in the SQL database should NEVER be manually modified.  All modifications should come through the Enterprise Administration Tool or through a client interface.

This is not a troubleshooting guide.  If you have any technical issues with SolidWorks, please contact Hawk Ridge Systems technical support.

This document is only to be distributed and used by Hawk Ridge Systems customers.  Any other use is prohibited.

 

Before Installation

Hawk Ridge Systems highly recommends taking a moment before installing SQL to check that you are ready to load your new software.

1. Check hardware and software compatibility.

    • Click the following link to check that your system meets the hardware and software requirements for SQL 2008

3. For local installations, be sure to run Setup as an administrator.  If you are installing from a network folder, you will need to use a domain account that has read and execute permissions for that folder.

4. If Enterprise PDM is already installed on the system you will need to uninstall the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Backward Compatibility package before you install SQL Server 2008.

5. Microsoft .Net 3.5 SP1 and Windows Installer 4.5 are required for installing SQL Server 2008.  If they are not installed, the Installation Wizard will install them before launching the SQL Server 2008 installation. You may need to restart the system after these installations.

6. For Windows Server 2008 R2, confirm that Microsoft .Net 3.5 SP1 is already installed.  To do this:

    • Right click Computer and select Manage. Under Features, click Add Features to open the Add Features wizard 
    • In the Add Features Wizard, on the Features page, expand .Net Framework 3.5.1 Features and select .Net Framework 3.5.1 (Installed).

7. All installations should be done from the files supplied by SolidWorks.

8.Port 1433 will need to be opened, for TCP and UDP traffic, on any firewalls between the SQL server system and the Enterprise Archive server and clients
