Database setup for Questionmark Perception
This chapter describes how to create and configure the following types of database to use as your Questionmark Perception Version 5 repository:
You should only use SQL Server 2005/2008 Express for light use or evaluation and demonstration purposes. For production purposes where you expect to deliver more than 1000 assessments per week we strongly recommend that:
You use a SQL Server or Oracle database
Your database is located on a separate application server to your Perception Server
To create a new database for use with Perception, follow the instructions in the sections above.
|The default instructions for setting up an SQL Server use SQL authentication. However, if you would prefer to use Windows authentication with your Perception database this is possible provided you are using SQL Server 2005/2008. To find out how to use Windows authentication please refer to the following section in theAdvanced configuration options chapter:|
