If you leave the fields in the Database Login section blank, the Metasys Database Manager uses the credentials of the user logged in to the Windows OS to access the SQL Server database.

If you enter text into the Database User Account and Password fields, the Metasys Database Manager uses that set of credentials to access the SQL Server database.

To ensure full access to Metasys Database Manager functionality:

  • The credentials that you enter must belong to a SQL Server System Administrator (sysadmin).

  • Your Windows login must be that of the administrator or a member of the Administrator group. Standard Windows users cannot backup and restore or change monitoring settings, even if they enter SQL Server sysadmin credentials here. However, Standard users can still view statistics.
