Genio is compatible with SQL Server 2008 R2 or later. However, it is advised to always use the latest version of SQL Server.

You can get a free Developer edition of Microsoft SQL Server 2019 here: https://www.microsoft.com/pt-pt/sql-server/sql-server-downloads

When installing SQL Server, use the default setup options except when noted below.

1. Feature Selection

Select all the features as shown in the image below.

Figure 1Components to install

2. Server Configuration / Collation

In "Server Configuration", in the Collation tab check that Collation is set to "Latin1_General_CI_AI" (default is "Latin1_General_CI_AS"). If not using this configuration, you must ensure that the case-sensitive and accent-sensitive options are cleared. This setting makes it easy to search for data because data entry is subject to many accentuation errors.

3. Database Engine Configuration

In the next step, select Mixed Mode so that third-party SQL applications can access the databases created therein.

The password here is based on the default user "sa". This is only for configuration and installation, not for normal use.

Also, add yourself (Add Current User) as SQL Server administrator.

4. Filestream

You’ll be asked to provide at least one Administrator for Analysis Services. Add yourself (Add Current User):

You must download all 4 cab files from the links provided at Machine Learning Server Components, and then browse your computer to the Downloads Directory. It takes some time to confirm the validity of the 4 downloaded files. Until that, the Next button is not available.

After several minutes installing the configuration previously defined, you’ll get the successful installation confirmation.

6. Enabling Named Pipes and TCP/IP

To ensure an optimized and flexible connection between the system and the database, protocol bindings should be enabled.

Open SQL Server 2019 Configuration Management:

 Figure 9Open SQL Server Configuration Manager

In SQL Configuration Manager, select the SQL Server instance and choose Enabled both for Named Pipes e for TCP/IP.

Then select the SQL Server instance and choose Restart.

That's it! SQL Server is ready to support Genio!
