On the computer hosting the Alloy Discovery 8 Inventory Server, stop the Inventory Server using the Inventory Server Manager:
- Run the Inventory Server Manager from the Windows Start menu (Start > Alloy Software > Inventory Server Manager) or using the Alloy Control Panel.
- Enter the name or IP address of the SQL server that hosts your Alloy Discovery 8 database, provide Alloy Discovery 8 administrative credentials, and choose the database name.
- Click Stop.
- Click OK to exit the Inventory Server Manager.
If you have several Inventory Server instances for your Alloy Discovery 8 database, you must stop every instance.
