The fault detection repository database resides on the ADS/ADX within the SQL Server software database.
The installation program places the fault detection repository on the same computer where the ADS/ADX software resides. The default directory location is C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL<version>.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA. For a split ADX, the directory location is on the database server on the same drive where the SQL Server software is installed. If you want to change where the databases are loaded (for example, E:\MyDatabases), you need to do so before you install the ADS/ADX software. For details, refer to the Metasys Server Installation and Upgrade Instructions (LIT-12012162) or the Metasys Server Lite Installation and Upgrade Instructions (LIT-12012258).
