    Note:

    If you choose to use Protect for the database name it will overwrite your current database and all information will be lost. We highly recommend you make a backup of your database before making any changes.

    When you first open the database set up tool it will be pointing to your current Database Server Instance and Database. You can then type in another database name ( like Shavlik or ProtectScans) then test the server connection.  Click Next to create the new database. Click finish.
