Set Up The AutoDesk Vault On SQL Server 2008

When configuring a server ahead of time to host a full version SQL database, one very important piece of information needs to be followed when configuring that first SQL instance:


The instance name needs to be AUTODESKVAULT. If the instance has a different name, then the AutoDesk management server installation will want to install its own SQL Express instance.

Since this particular client needs a full version of SQL due to the size of their database, we need that full version instance available when we are running the setup routine.
