How to Create a New Protect Database or Change Existing Database Link

Version 3



    This provides the steps to create a new database or point Shavlik Protect to a different SQL Server or  database.




    Close the Shavlik Protect program if open

    To Create a new Protect Database navigate to all programs\Shavlik Protect\Database Set Up Tool




    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.
