Select Databases Page (New Availability Group Wizard/Add Database Wizard)

This help topic describes the options of the Specify Databases page. This topic applies to the New Availability Group Wizard and Add Database to Availability Group Wizard of SQL Server 2014.

The User databases on this instance of SQL Server grid lists every local user database. The columns are as follows:
