There are options during installation to create the internal database on a new server, see below. Creating a sqlexpress database is only an option if you do not specify an existing database server. If already installed you can point an insight server to a different internal database by running the internaldb.exe utility in the insight installation directory.

You can install the Scribe Internal Scribe database on any supported SQL Server

instance (local or remote) that Scribe Insight can access.

Since this section describes installing Scribe for the first time; Scribe assumes that you

do not have an existing Scribe Internal database. For information about connecting to

an existing database, see Section 7 Updating Your Scribe Products.
