The Metasys reporting repository database resides on an ADS/ADX within the SQL Server software database. The Metasys reporting repository contains Metasys Advanced Reporting System information.
The installation program places the Metasys reporting repository on the same computer where the ADX software resides. The default directory location is C:\ProgramData\Johnson Controls\MetasysIII\SQLData (pre-Release 8.0) or C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL<version>.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA (Release 8.0 or later). For a split ADX, the directory location is on the database server computer 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 Custom Locations for Metasys Server Application and Databases section in the Metasys Server Installation and Upgrade Instructions (LIT-12012162).
