Source Database

Updated in 2021.2

Specify the source database—the Alloy Navigator Express database you want to upgrade.

  1. Specify the SQL Server that hosts your existing production database. This database is referred to as "source database."

    NOTE: If your SQL Server is configured to accept connections on a non-standard port, add this port number after the server name, separating them with a comma; for example: SERVER001,5618.

  2. Provide the credentials with the 'sysadmin' fixed server role. These credentials will only be used for upgrading the database and will not be stored.

    • To log in using your Windows account, choose Windows Authentication. You are not required to type in a login and password.

    • To use your SQL Server account, choose SQL Server Authentication and enter your SQL login name and password.

  3. Select the name of the source database from the drop-down list.

  4. Click Next.
