        3. Click the Show information option when the tool has been started. An effective scan should like the one below. Look through the comprehensive report, take care of any problems you run across, then restart the scan if necessary.

        8. Wait for the Rule Check to complete.

        17. You may choose between Windows authentication mode and Mixed Mode in the Database Engine Configuration box. Choose the one that will fit your setting the best; descriptions are underneath.

          • If you want to use a SQL Server account to authenticate Secret Server to your SQL Server instance, Mixed Mode is necessary. This makes setting simpler. If you are putting up a test or demo setup, we advise utilizing mixed mode. You will also need to create a password for the SQL Server system administrator (sa) account if you choose this option. For information on how to add more users, go to the section below titled Adding a SQL Server User.

          • SQL Server account authentication will be blocked in Windows Mode (the recommended setting for maximum security). Windows Mode is suggested for use in production settings. Your SQL instance's administrative access will be granted to whichever user or group is designated. Best Security Practices recommend keeping this number of users as low as feasible.

          NB:To execute your Thycotic product's IIS Application Pool(s) later in the installation process, you will also need to create a service account if you select Windows Mode.

        18. NB: Choose an Administrator account to monitor your SQL Server database.

          If you want to store the database and log data on a different disk or directory, you may click Next after changing the file locations in the "Data Directories" and "TempDB" tabs. Otherwise, you can keep the remaining tabs' parameters at their default settings.

          Wait for the setup procedure to reach the "Ready to Install" phase before clicking Install.
