Database Installation 


Database Set-up 

Before beginning the set-up for CVI Net Web, it is important to know what type of database server will be used by the CVI Net (collector) service to store tightening traceability. Depending on which server type you are using will define which installation to follow and the configuration required for the service.


It also required that the server type you will be using with the CVI Net Web platform is already installed on your server machine and that sufficient rights are being used throughout the set-up process. If you are not operating the server machine locally you will also need to have a suitable network configuration and connection throughout the operations.


Microsoft SQL Server 

Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system developed by Microsoft that can be used to store and manage tightening traceability recorded by the CVI Net (collector) service. Before beginning the set-up process below it is expected that a compatible version of Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio have been installed and configured with adequate permissions available to be used. Please see all compatible Microsoft SQL Server versions below.


Applicable Versions

Compatible Microsoft Server VersionsMicrosoft SQL Server 2005
Microsoft SQL Server 2008
Microsoft SQL Server 2012
Microsoft SQL Server 2014
Microsoft SQL Server 2016
Microsoft SQL Server 2017


Once a suitable version of a Microsoft SQL Server and management studio have been installed you can follow the instructions below to set-up the correct database and configure the CVI Net Web platform.


SQL Server Services Configuration 

  • Open SQL Server Configuration Manager

If you are struggling to find SQL Server Configuration Manager then you can use the 'Run' Command to open it. Open the Start Menu and type 'Run'. In the Run command window, you can type 'SQLServerManager<version>.msc' and hit Enter. Replace <version> to match your required SQL version seen here:


SQL Server 2017SQLServerManager14.msc 
SQL Server 2016SQLServerManager13.msc 
SQL Server 2014SQLServerManager12.msc
SQL Server 2012SQLServerManager11.msc



  • Click SQL Server Services, ensure that the SQL Server service and SQL Browser service for your used server are Running. If they are not running, right-click and click Start

  • Open SQL Server Network Configuration and choose your used server.
    • Ensure that TCP/IP is enabled

  • Right-click on 'TCP/IP' and choose 'Properties'
  • Navigate to 'IP Addresses'

  • Scroll to the bottom and take note of the Dynamic Port number

  • Click on the 'Open File' button in the toolbar.
  • Select the SQL script 'SQLServer_Ind--.sql' applicable to your version

When adding the tables to your database, you must use the correct 'Ind' version to ensure that the schema version of the database is compatible with the verson of CVI Net Web you intend to use.


See here for information about database version compatibility in CVI Net Web

  • After selecting the correct SQL file it should be open in a query like seen here

  • Ensure the target is set to your desired database

  • Ensure your cursor is before line 1 of the query and click the 'Parse' button on the toolbar or press Ctrl+F5 to validate the query
  • The Results pane should show "Command(s) completed successfully."
  • Click the 'Execute' button on the toolbar or press F5 to run the query

In the event of seeing error message regarding login, please consult the server administrator


  • On the below menu, define the default database for the data source as your CVI Net Web database
  • Click Next

  • Click Finish
  • You will see that a new windows appears asking to test the data source, click ' Test the Data Source...'

If all is configured correctly in your SQL Server instance to allow for remote connection then you should see that the test succeeds like below


In the event of seeing error message regarding login, please consult the server administrator
