Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express Edition is distributed with SolarWinds NCM. SQL Server 2014 Express Edition supports a maximum database size of 10GB, is limited to 1GB of RAM use, and takes advantage of only 1 CPU in a multiprocessor server, according to information published by Microsoft.

SolarWinds recommends that you create the database on a separate SQL Server host, and not the SolarWinds NCM host. To increase performance, we recommend using a remote SQL Server host if you are installing SolarWinds NCM on the same host as SolarWinds NPM.

The following characters cannot be included in the database name:

  • Asterisk (*)
  • Closing square bracket (])
  • Colon (:)
  • Semicolon (;)
  • Single quote (')
  • Double quote (")
  • Backward slash (\)
  • Forward slash (/)
  • Less than (<)
  • Greater than (>)
  • Question mark (?)

The following characters cannot be included in the user name or password of the database account:

  • Semicolon (;)
  • Single quote (')
