Applies To: Application Virtualization
You can use the following procedure to install a database for your server-based deployment of Application Virtualization if a database is not already available. Typically, in a production environment, you will connect to an existing database.
|To install the database, you must use a network account with the appropriate permissions. If your organization requires that only database administrators are allowed to create and conduct database upgrades, scripts are available that allow this task to be performed.|
