    Administration Database Settings
    To use an existing database server:
    If an external database is specified, enable the remote connections of the external SQL Server.
    After enabling remote connections, start the SQL Server Browser service because SQL Servers with default configurations listen on a dedicated port. If the port is already occupied by a program, the SQL Server will choose another port. External programs need to communicate with the SQL Server Browser service to determine the new SQL Server listening port.
    When selecting an external database, a DNS record for the server, where the database resides, must exist in the DNS server. You can specify the IP address or hostname of the server. If the IMSS Setup program cannot query the DNS record of the server where the external database resides, IMSS cannot connect to the external database.
    1. Select Use existing database server.
    2. Click Next. Type the required information for the existing database server. Passwords can contain letters, numbers and the following characters:
      `~!@#$%^&*()[]{}+-|:'<>?/,.= _.
      Type the required information 
    To install the SQL Server Express database on this server:
    Cancelling the installation of SQL Server Express requires some manual cleanup.
    Certain components cannot be automatically removed:
    1. Microsoft SQL Server Native Client
    2. Microsoft SQL Server Setup Support Files
    3. Microsoft SQL Server VSS Writer
    When SQL Server Express installs, the database settings are configured for local connections by default. If external connections to the database are required, enable the remote connections of the SQL server.
    1. Select Install SQL Server Express.
    2. Type a Database name and Password for the "sa" user account.
      Passwords can contain letters, numbers and the following characters: `~!@#$%^&*()[]{}+-|:'<>?/,.= _.
      Select Install SQL Server Express. 
    The instance of the database that installs is IMSS_SSEINSTANCE. When appending a scanner to this IMSS installation, provide the following: hostname(IP address)\IMSS_SSEINSTANCE.
  9. Click Next. The Choose Destination Location screen appears.
  10. To change the destination directory, click Browse and locate the desired directory. On Windows Server 2003 x64 platforms, IMSS 7.1 cannot install in the directory C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\imss.
    Install IMSS in the following directory on Windows Server 2003 x64 platforms C:\Program Files(x86)\Trend Micro\imss.
